At twelve MPS schools, there were no students proficient in math or English. Those schools did not receive standard state report card grades, instead using the alternate rating process. That is a self-evaluation of the school’s performance on student achievement in English and math. Seven of the twelve schools reported they are making satisfactory progress, while the other five say they need improvement.
These results ought to make clear that school choice, whether it is private schools in the choice program or public charter schools, is making an important difference in the lives of Milwaukee students.
