Breaking News: Leaked Memo Details Sen. Taylor’s MPS Takeover Legislation

TMD has obtained an internal memo sent from Sen. Taylor to other state representatives (dated 11/5/09 7:35 pm) seeking their co-sponsorship for the MPS Takeover legislation. This memo not only asks for co-sponsorship, but it provides specific details of the upcoming (draft) legislation. This is what the public has been waiting for… details!

Beloved, one thing you will continue to read from me is the mantra follow the money. This entire reform gets down to one thing, money… more specifically, Race To The Top federal grants. State governors must apply for the grant and that is where this all begins with Doyle. Did you know that 50% of any grant received must be given to local educational agencies (LEAs), including public charter schools identified as LEAs under State law? I guess you won’t see many preachers in Milwaukee opposing this Takeover since their schools stand to benefit financially. Where did Doyle have that press conference in Milwaukee last week?

Let me back this thing up for you quickly. Some of you still are wondering what gives? Jump down the worm hole with me again just for a second… President Obama and Congress passed the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA) aka the Stimulus Package (2/17/09). Inside this legislation is approximately $4.3 billion set aside for states that implement education reform targeted to increase student achievement, closing achievement gaps, improving graduation rates and preparation for success in college/careers. Follow the money family…

Let’s get back to this memo. Sen. Taylor (or someone) has titled the proposed legislation the Milwaukee Transforms Education for All Our Children (TEACH) Act. The proposed bill will give the future Mayor (Barrett is leaving) total power over the Milwaukee Public School System and strips the School Board of theirs. All the core functions the School Board once had are transferred to the Superintendent (hired by the Mayor).

I thank Sen. Taylor for emailing what she has failed to say publicly for many months about this Takeover. Go to the 5th page of the memo and read the highlighted paragraph very closely. I told you before to request (Freedom of Information Act) public meeting records (emails, phone calls, etc.) of Doyle, Barrett, Taylor and the other public officials. That will reveal who these so-called “community leaders” and “stakeholders” are who are conspiring to Takeover MPS. The last sentence confirms what this is really all about… for transformational growth and change in Milwaukee Public Schools and by doing so, strengthen the state’s Race to the Top application. Milwaukee Public Schools is being used as a pawn to increase Wisconsin’s chance of being awarded the Race To The Top federal funding.

I guess we should thank Sen. Taylor for (finally) being honest… follow the money.

Read her memo and decide for yourself.

  2. I love liars. Especially, legal ones that try to make a stupid case bcsauee they have nothing better to do in their small town lives.

In fact, everything I do is no one’s business! But do not accuse me of bullshit . People that are private and personal are not always hiding something. That’s what drug addicts do and they cannot realize other people are not like them. Smart people keep their stuff private to avoid identity theft, and the wolves in sheep clothing that exist out of their lives. Also, to be left alone and to keep away the people known to steal!I’m entitled to privacy.

  5. Fantastic blog! Do you have any hints for aspiring writers?
    I’m hoping to start my own website soon but I’m a
    little lost on everything. Would you advise starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option?
    There are so many choices out there that I’m completely confused .. Any suggestions? Bless you!

  6. Hi! This is kind of off topic but I need some
    advice from an established blog. Is it tough to set up your
    own blog? I’m not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty quick. I’m thinking about creating
    my own but I’m not sure where to start. Do you have any points or suggestions? Thanks

  7. Thank you, I have recently been searching for information
    approximately this subject for ages and yours is the best I’ve discovered till now. But, what in regards to the conclusion? Are you positive about the source?

  8. At family reunions, an old photo of great-grandma and great-grandpa printed on a pin and marked with
    the reunion year makes a special gift for everyone.
    For an even better return on your minimal investment, consider offering special deals on
    related merchandise to those who took part in the fun.
    Buying and selling pins are often designed to memorialize anniversaries as well as celebrations, show help for the athletics, instructional as well as
    sports activities group and at martial arts training events.

  9. However, right or wrong, these items would not suit
    if you were applying at a public school. Choosing the right niche,
    the right coach or mentor, and being committed can bring you a passive income for many,
    many years. Certificates of achievement might be the standard when
    it comes to recognizing professionals for their continued education, but often they wind up
    hidden away on an office wall that few see.

  10. Advertising exposure is of course one of the oldest business tactics around, as old as business itself.
    If you are unable to send the IRS these details, then you
    are going to not be capable of claim the pay as a company expense.
    Second, it is both the website and the category of the business.

    the value of these metals increases even more during times of economic decline as

  13. I was recommended this website by my cousin. I am not sure whether this post is written
    by him as nobody else know such detailed about my difficulty.
    You’re wonderful! Thanks!

  14. Soon the entire 100 slaves stand up claiming to be Spartacus.
    One hundred and thirty-seven (137) boaters died in the 40-49 age group category — the highest number reported for any age
    group. If you purchase in an area where you wish to vacation, you may be
    unpleasantly surprised when you arrive at your destination.

  15. I have been browsing on-line greater than 3 hours as of late, but I by no means discovered any interesting article like yours.

    It’s beautiful price enough for me. In my view, if all webmasters and bloggers
    made excellent content material as you probably did, the internet will likely be much more helpful than ever before.
