MLWAUKEE – Supervisor Sequanna Taylor expressed her disapproval of Director Michael Bonds‘ outburst during Tuesday night’s meeting of the Board of School Directors.

“Every day, MPS educators teach our students to conduct themselves in a positive and professional manner. Our students know that there will be consequences if they speak to their teachers in the way Director Bonds spoke to MTEA Vice President Mizialko during Tuesday night’s school board meeting.

“Several students were present during the meeting and witnessed the president of our school board boldly disrespect an educator and then escalate an already tense situation with additional inflammatory language – the opposite of how we teach our students to conduct themselves during a conflict.

“Director Bonds’ outburst at Tuesday’s School Board meeting was totally inappropriate and he owes our union president and all MPS educators and students an apology.”

Supervisor Taylor is the President of the Milwaukee Educational Assistants’ Association Council, a division of the MTEA.
