Milwaukee Journal Sentinel | Szafir: MPS Must Embrace New Ideas

Published on: January 8, 2016

WILL Vice President for Policy and Deputy Counsel CJ Szafir writing in the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel:

The law was passed because, as Darling put it, “(MPS has) blocked reforms over the years, instead of protecting teachers or the status quo.” Bold reform is not simply advocating for business as usual by helping the same people at MPS do more of the same thing.

Of course not every charter or private school is successful, though studies show many successes. And not all MPS schools are failing. But, that’s not the point. We must be open to expanding the best schools without regard to who runs them.
