On Friday, September 18, almost 60 public schools in Milwaukee will host “walk-ins” to celebrate and protect our public schools, and to share information with parents and community members about proposed public school takeovers.

The state legislature passed a plan to take over several public schools in Milwaukee. County executive Chris Abele is expected to appoint a commissioner this fall to oversee the takeover schools. The commissioner will then identify 1-3 schools this year to be taken over next year. Very few specifics are available. For example, we do not know how the commissioner’s salary will be funded, or how the schools will be chosen.

Community allies are organizing to fight the takeover and to stand up for public schools that welcome and serve all children.

Here are the schools that are currently hosting a walk-in (click on the school to RSVP).

A walk-in is an early morning gathering of parents, students, educators and community supporters who come together to celebrate their school and to share information about how public school takeovers will hurt our students and deny critical services, such as bilingual education and special education. Watch video of a walk-in here.
