Milwaukee Public Schools to consider dissolving district…
This just came in today’s Milwaukee Journal: http://www.jsonline.com/story/index.aspx?id=796646
Basically, the state’s largest school district could break into many smaller districts. As a whole and like many urban districts in large cities, MPS consumes a lot of resources just to sustain itself. However, it doesn’t produce results commesurate to its size as measured by state tests or by the majority of people who have passed through its doors. (I am sure there are some wonderful people who have been through MPS’ “system” over the years.)
Once again, I continue to have serious concerns about our educational system as a whole – from large to small districts what has become the “Industrialization” of our educational process.
