MPS’ foolish anti-police policy

The Milwaukee Public School District’s enrollment has dropped by more than 20,000 students in just the last 14 years — a stunning decline of over 25% that, Marquette’s Alan Borsuk points out, is the equivalent of losing five high schools and 25 kindergarten-through-eighth grade elementary schools.  

As I pointed out in a column last year, MPS had about 100,000 kids as recently as 1990. That number is now down to approximately 58,000 and dropping rapidly.

    freedom of speech had become an alias for fair speech. The abuses of power alienated my opinions due to their negligence
    and warped Fulfillment of their
    controlling devious minds.
    We still vote for them even when
    their willful disregard shuns the
    very same people who voted for them
    So I ask you l, what is the definition of stupid?
