Government vs Public schools In Milwaukee

Annysa Johnson:

A Milwaukee Public School committee on Tuesday declined to vote on a controversial plan to house a struggling Milwaukee public school and a higher-performing charter school under one roof, instead kicking it to the full MPS board of directors for review.

The Milwaukee Public Schools’ Committee on Student Achievement and School Innovation voted 4-1 to send to the board, with no recommendation, the proposed partnership between MPS’ Casimir Pulaski High School and Carmen High School of Science and Technology on the Pulaski campus at 2500 W. Oklahoma Ave.

Milwaukee Public Schools Superintendent Darienne Driver has proposed creating a single campus where the two schools, each with about 800 students, could collaborate in an effort to boost academic performance for both.
