MPS is Changing the Status Quo

Please take a minute to read an excellent column by Milwaukee School Board Vice President Larry Miller in which he pokes holes in an anti-MPS “analysis” by a pro-voucher group and highlights efforts at MPS to improve student achievement that have already shown results.

He concludes:

The efforts MPS is undertaking to improve outcomes for students may not have the “flash” of plans to strip local control of schools, to transfer public buildings to private entities or to fire teachers en masse. But they are far from the “status quo” and they have the benefit of being strongly rooted in what has worked and is working to improve achievement for students in Milwaukee.
