MPS Response to Right Wisconsin
"The author of the article should be ashamed that he is engaging in such offensive cyberbullying..."
We are proud that MPS is working hard to provide the same access to state-of-the-art facilities for our students as districts in surrounding areas have for theirs. We are proud of the Class of 2018, which earned $86.2 million in scholarships, a new district record. We are proud of our students serving as interns for Harley-Davidson, America’s iconic motorcycle company. We are also proud of our Vincent High School urban agriculture students who were the only students to represent Milwaukee at the Wisconsin State Fair.
MPS is outraged – as every parent in the City of Milwaukee should be – that an adult would feel free to make such a derogatory, hurtful, and dishonest statement about more than 75,000 children.
The author of the article should be ashamed that he is engaging in such offensive cyberbullying, which we are sure he would not tolerate if his children were being discussed in these abusive terms.
We have far too many students who work hard every day and who accomplish great things to let an ill-informed and hateful statement stand without comment. We are MPS proud.
