Teachers and Parents: The Milwaukee Experience.
Peterson, Robert
This booklet tells of the 1987 struggle teachers and parents of a racially-integrated, working-class neighborhood of Milwaukee faced when the central administration of the Milwaukee Public Schools announced the closing of the neighborhood school. Parents and teachers dreamed of a decent school that children would want to attend, in an integrated neighborhood, teaching children to be bilingual in Spanish and English, using cooperative and innovative methods, governed by a council of parents and teachers. La Escuela Fratney grew from the tradition of a long history of progressivism in Wisconsin. The struggles for Fratney School are recounted with both its successes and challenges that lie ahead. (EH)
