News and Views: Regents Committee Moves To Fire Professor Sabina Burton

June 4, 2018

MacIver Investigative Reporter Matt Kittle joins Oliver Burrows on WXCO in Wausau for his weekly discussion of Wisconsin news and politics. Up this week – a UW System Board of Regents committee will recommend the firing of whistleblower professor Sabina Burton after hearing the arguments from Burton and UW-Platteville administrators. Burton will be dismissed because she wasn’t “collegial,” but she contends it’s because she reported a male colleague for inappropriate sexual behavior toward a female student. That, and Wisconsin Democrat candidates for governor pledge to repeal Act 10, Gov. Walker’s landmark reform that’s saved taxpayers more than $5 billion.
