Republican Leader Scott Fitzgerald Makes Threats to Further Cut Funding for Milwaukee Public Schools

Republican leaders in the State Legislature are continuing to single out Milwaukee, the state’s diverse, economic engine. Infuriated that their plan to takeover Milwaukee Public Schools has failed and at the heels of the resignation of Demond Means, Scott Fitzgerald’s desperate comments hit a new low by threatening the children of Milwaukee Public Schools with more revenue cuts. Students in Milwaukee should not be used as a political pawn. We must invest in their future, our future, by ensuring they are taught by certified, education professionals, attend class sizes small enough for one-on-one attention, and are offered more after school programs. We applaud Milwaukee Public Schools’ decision to protect children from a failed reform model that would usurp the power of the democratically elected school board and blindly hand current MPS students over to private, unaccountable operators. It is unacceptable that the most racially diverse school district in the State is being targeted and singled out once again. Republicans in the State Legislature should abandon their failed school takeover proposal now and focus on truly giving all Milwaukee children a fair shot to succeed. Don’t be childish and take your ball and leave when you have lost, accept your mistake…

Dear Editor: This letter is addressed to Voces de la Frontera Estimado Voces de la Frontera, Escribo este texto para informarles a los latinos y partidarios que asistirán y participarán en la protesta. Se han equivocado gravemente acerca de los efectos de AB450 y el significado de SB533. Animo a todos a leer y traducir cada proyecto de ley (que ya he posteado en este caso) para que sepan realmente si estoy diciendo la verdad o no. Trataré de mantener mis puntos cortos y sencillos. AB450 es un proyecto de ley presentado por el asambleísta Spiros que puede multar a cualquier subdivisión política (condado, ciudad, municipio, etc.) que aprueba la ley que inhibe la aplicación de la ley para denunciar a inmigrantes ilegales al gobierno federal. En esencia, Spiros está tratando de acabar con “las ciudades santuario” en Wisconsin. Spiros ha nombrado a Racine, Madison y Milwaukee como “ciudades santuario” pero hay un sólo problema. No hay. Ninguna subdivisión política tiene la autoridad legal a la aplicación de la ley que dejará de informar a los inmigrantes ilegales al gobierno federal. Cualquier política que se ha aprobado en estas subdivisiones políticas no tiene ninguna autoridad legal. Si se aprobaría este…
