Springfield School Superintendent Walter Milton is one of two finalists for the top schools job in Madison, Wis.
Milton and a top official from the Chicago Public Schools are the final remaining contenders out of 65 original applicants for the job, according to the Madison school system. They will both appear before a community forum later this week.
It's not the first time Milton has been up for consideration for a job in another district since arriving in Springfield. He has also had clashes with some school board members, prompting several African-American leaders to accuse the board of racism in its dealings with Milton.
