Milwaukee Superintendent’s “Mission Impossible”

Alan Borsuk:

The new episode, starring William Andrekopoulos and debuting in many schools near you on Sept. 5, will feature:

  • Increased pressure on teachers, students and schools, as well as on the mission leader, to get better results from kids.
  • More competition from schools outside MPS, including voucher and charter schools.
  • Smaller staffs in many MPS schools, and a lot of nervousness at schools about how things are really going.
  • A group of schools bearing the new label “SMAART” (and that’s not a compliment).
