There is a new leader making decisions that affect about 80,000 Milwaukee schoolchildren.
Keith Posley took over as Milwaukee Public Schools’ interim superintendent a few months ago. He wants to turn around low-achieving schools, slash chronic absenteeism and boost enrollment. And he’s not the only one with great expectations. Other Milwaukee education leaders have high hopes for Posley himself.
“This work is all about children for me,” he said in an interview with WUWM.
