Senators vote to make public schools teach the history of organized labor
Wisconsin's public schools would have to teach the history of organized labor under a bill passed by the state Senate.
The Assembly approved it earlier, so it now goes to Gov. Jim Doyle.
Tuesday's vote was 20-12.
Joe Leibham, R-Sheboygan, questioned the need for more state-mandated curriculum.
But Mike Ellis, R-Neenah, said a lesson about unions "doesn't hurt anybody."
