What Is the Milwaukee K-12 School System? A Comprehensive Overview of the Educational Options Open to Milwaukee Parents
Sandler, Larry; Schmidt, Jeff; Yeado, Joe
Public Policy Forum
Throughout much of the nation, parents have a clear-cut choice of where to educate their children--in a public school, at taxpayer expense, or in a private school, at the family's expense. In Milwaukee and some other cities, however, that line is not so clear; students can attend public schools operated by private organizations and private schools that receive public funding, in addition to traditional public and private schools. This report presents a comprehensive overview of the educational options open to Milwaukee elementary and secondary school students, both as a guide to parents seeking to navigate the often-confusing range of options, and as background for policymakers and other interested parties who wish to familiarize themselves with the basics of the city's educational landscape. Schools in Milwaukee can be grouped either by their format--as public schools, charter schools or private schools--or by their governing authorities--the Milwaukee School Board, other public entities, or private organizations.
