MADISON, Wis. - Failing public schools could be closed and subpar private schools would no longer be able to accept taxpayer-funded voucher students under the latest version of an accountability bill introduced in the Assembly.

The Senate has already passed a school accountability bill that does not include sanctions. At the time, Senate leaders said that was the only version of the proposal that had enough votes to pass.

Both Republicans and Democrats say they want greater accountability for all schools, but they haven't been able to agree on what that should look like.
