Educate All Students: Larry Miller's Blog

Is This Thursday’s Marquette Law School Forum Intended to Help Pave the Way for the MMAC Takeover Plan of MPS?

Filed under: Borsuk,MMAC — millerlf @ 10:04 am

The Marquette Law School is sponsoring a conference this Thursday, November 17, seemingly to introduce the MMAC’s new plan to create 2 school districts in the City of Milwaukee (see blog: MMAC Proposes New MPS Takeover Plan.)

The opening session of the conference, with a speaker followed by a panel, is basically a pep rally for the New Orleans “reforms”.  The panel includes Howard Fuller, a key architect of the MMAC plan. There is no speaker with a critical perspective on education in New Orleans.

According to the MMAC, the post-Katrina  New Orleans school “reforms” show the path for improving Milwaukee’s schools. The MMAC’s interpretation is:
·         Flood Milwaukee with “miracle” national charter schools.
·         Create a “low-performing” school district within MPS with an appointed school board.
·         Track students in the “low performing” district into vocational education.

I will be posting information about the New Orleans model and the MMAC plans over the next few days.
