Rick Melcher 
​State Superintendent
Getting Politicians Out of Our Classrooms
Empowering and Assisting Communities
A 25 year veteran of both rural and urban schools and the communities they serve, I believe the best ideas for improving education will grow out of relationships among the people closest to the students. Both as a candidate and as State Superintendent, I will travel Wisconsin to actively listen to and then address issues both common among and unique to the diverse communities of our state. "The role of State Superintendent is to serve the Public and the schools the state provides for them."
