… Is the Milwaukee Public School system crazy ?!?! …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Monday,December 30th,2013

.. from research that I have been able to do , and from having watched an episode of On The Record [tonight , with Dana Perino , guest hosting] , I have to conclude that the Milwaukee Public School system is totally crazy ! …

.. my understanding is (and it might be a tad errant) is that either one or more suburban districts or charter (voucher) schools are interested in buying applicable Milwaukee Public School buildings . Simple Enough , right  ?

.. Wrong . Evidently the MPS (less of a mouthful) will not sell these empty buildings to anybody . Worse , most if not all of these buildings are in reasonable shape . Some are even in pristine (or ideal) shape . Ones that would bring a pretty penny , that would help MPS deal with its budget . But Nooooooo !

.. MPS is maintaining these empty , repeat EMPTY buildings for a cost of (likely) millions of $$ of taxpayers hard earned money . How many students are they educating ? Zero ! Zip ! Zilch . Zippo . Nice going , Dummies !

.. They could be filled with bright young minds (it does not matter what race they are , or should it) . Yet ,  they sit empty , as a cash drain on a district that can use all of the help that it can get .

.. Someone should educate them that it is a new day in Wisconsin . If I remember right , the GOP controls the legislature , and the Governor is Scott Walker . Budgets are a heady place to apply leverage to recalcitrant bureaucrats . If you want more budget $$ , sell those damn buildings , you idiots . Either do it ,  or we will pass a bill to do it for you ….
