Many of Dane County’s private and parochial students will return to school buildings on Monday after the conservative-majority Wisconsin Supreme Court blocked a county emergency order that barred in-person classes for grades 3-12 during the pandemic, the Cap Times reports. The court issued its 4-3 order along familiar ideological lines.
“While the sides make their arguments on the merits of the order over the next 60 days, the court determined that continuing to bar in-person school would do ‘irreparable harm’ and indicated in the opinion a likelihood that the challengers will win the final decision, as well,” Scott Girard reports.
