Takeover Commissioner Means’ resignation a victory for Milwaukee students and community, MTEA says

“We hope that Means’ resignation leads to swift and serious action among state legislators to fully support the students of MPS with adequate funding to provide our students with the resources they deserve, including certified educators, lower class sizes for more one-on-one support, inviting classrooms and well rounded curriculum,” said Milwaukee Teachers’ Education Association (MTEA) President Kim Schroeder.

MPS supporters rally against takeover plan, in support of Community Schools

Supporters of Milwaukee Public Schools rallied outside the Milwaukee County Courthouse Monday to fight the takeover of some MPS schools under a new state law. “It’s wrong and it’s not going to help education and it’s not going to help education in the city,” Schools and Communities United Co-Chair Ingrid Walker-Henry told WDJT TV, Channel 58. “What would help education is if they actually worked on funding or they gave children what they need like libraries, art, music and gym teachers.”
