Wisconsin DPI veracity: 84% exceed expectations

Rory Linane:

Milwaukee Public Schools was among 84 school districts that received a lower star-rating than last year. Giving two stars, DPI said the district “meets few expectations.” Last year, the DPI gave the district three stars and said it met expectations.

DPI officials said the report cards are continuing to bear the weight of the pandemic, as they take into account three years of testing data.
