Possible Milwaukee School Board Governance Changes

Alan Borsuk:

It’s been several years since I thought about tumult and division at the top of the Milwaukee Public Schools system, which was fine with me on several levels.
The run ended last week with several conversations that left me wondering what lies ahead on several important fronts for the state’s epicenter of education concerns.
To jump to the bottom line: My guess is that Superintendent Gregory Thornton will stay on for a while, the School Board, which will have one and possibly two new members after the April 2 elections, will stay on more or less the course it’s on, and the school system as a whole will continue to be faced with big problems of declining enrollment and increasing challenges in serving students well.
