Following is a document being circulated by the “education team” of the Milwaukee Metropolitan Association of Commerce. It is their plan to seize corporate control of MPS. MMAC is making education their “…top priority…”now that Walker is governor and the Republicans have control of the state house and senate.
Some of their proposals are:
Lift the cap on vouchers.
Remove income limits for voucher recipients. (Vouchers for all!)
Flood Milwaukee with charter schools.
Equalize funding for voucher and charter schools with MPS.
Force MPS to offer facilities to non-MPS schools.
Stack charter school governance boards with MMAC members.
Change MPS board elections so all are city-wide. (End community power in elections.)
Change MPS governance model.
Be sure to read Page 8 of the PDF which is the summary and identifies the members of the MMAC “education team.”
Howard Fuller is present and accounted for.
