CHICAGO — Wisconsin Gov. Jim Doyle yesterday announced a package of education-related reform legislation that would hand the control of the struggling Milwaukee Public Schools system over to the city’s mayor.

Doyle announced the package, which included control of the system and statewide reform proposals, yesterday alongside several Milwaukee lawmakers who support the measures and would serve as sponsors when the bills are introduced. Doyle might seek a special session of the Legislature to consider the mayoral control issue this year.
