Sponsored by the Milwaukee Teachers’ Education Association Action Network:
“Republicans Senator Alberta Darling and Rep. Dale Kooyenga have proposed legislation to take over many Milwaukee Public Schools that educate mainly African American and Latino children in high-poverty neighborhoods. Our communities reject this takeover of our schools. We want vibrant, public community schools that welcome and serve all children, offer special education services and bilingual education, and are locally controlled and accountable to parents.
Cities around the country that have implemented school takeover zones have not improved student achievement, and have devastated their local economies. Schools run by third party operators enroll significantly fewer students with special needs, and do not offer bilingual education or other needed services. The dozens of taxpayer-funded, privately run charter and voucher schools that already exist in Milwaukee show no improvement in student achievement compared to public schools.
Parents, students, and community members, please sign this petition to Stop the Takeover of Milwaukee Public Schools.”
