As issues of race, racism and structural inequities dominate the national consciousness, Milwaukee Public Schools board members are laying the groundwork for what they hope will be a new push to address the hyper segregation in southeastern Wisconsin. The board unanimously passed a resolution last week calling on activists, elected officials and others to develop a regional plan to desegregate schools and reduce inequities among schools in the region.

Comments:

Milwaukee is highly segregated largely due to the racist self-segregation of The Community. The schools are horrid because The Community demands nothing more than warehousing and social welfare action from Milwaukee Public Schools (MPS). Its graduation rate rose to 69.1 percent for the Class of 2019 according to data released March 10, 2020. The state rate is 90 percent, including MPS. Black completion (not graduation) rate was 66%. Let's spread this quality and level of performance universally! The Community can start by reforming its schools, including its students and their outlook on American society.

I live in Shoreline wa. We are right next door to Seattle. The mob will be after our school district next. I have an idea. Why not bus children from one district to another to make the schools unsegregated. The liberals in my little town will love that. s/

Is the idea here to make the black kids act more white, or vice versa? They need to state the goal.

Home school. There are even online schools where there is a teacher available for the kids. Some are only about 3G per school year, per kid.

Tell the white kids getting bused into ghetto schools to bring lots of money to give to their black, I mean Black, fellow student to atone for their white privilege. They should also sew knee pads into all their pants and get used to kneeling.

I must have missed something, as I was under the assumption that the public schools throughout the USA were desegregated decades ago?

The Community is badly misinformed on quite a number of topics. How do you get their attention and break perpetual victimhood?

They send their kids to school for babysitting and the free breakfast and lunch. Actually studying and getting good grades is acting "white". It makes no difference who is teaching the class if the students have no intention of participating in their own education. Which they don't. Parent(s) don't care, kids don't care. Teachers spend most of their class time on just trying to survive the experience.

Louisville, Kentucky and Jefferson xounty, merged into a metro government, but did not merge school districts. A federal judge, respoinding to a law suit brought against the new metro government, ruled that the failure to merge the school districts represented illegal racial discrimination, and ordered a merger. It has not gone well there. Before anyone considers a merger of school districts (that appears to be the goal in Milwaukee) they should look at Louisville first.

I grew up north of Milwaukee in the 60s and 70s. I thought we went through all that desegration stuff back then. It's sad to see the cesspool Milwaukee has become, it was always one of my favorite cities.

Nearly all schools are funded by local property tax dollars. If you have "good schools" you probably have high property taxes, which is another barrier to entry for anyone trying to buy into that particular neighborhood. Most schools have been controlled by the Teachers Union, who also ensures they have a compliant School Board. So, if after decades of working the system, and they are stating there is systemic racism..... Some may not like where the fingers suddenly get pointed.

.... state rate is 90 percent, including MPS. Black completion (not graduation) rate was 66%. ... Let' us put this another way. The overpaid administrators have FAILED a third of their students, trapping them hopelessly in the lower echelon of society w/o an education. That is criminal, and they should be fired and prosecuted for negligence.

It fits, it all fits. After all, Jim Crow and segregation and everything else the Dems now claim they hate and must remedy (now???) are the product of the Democrat Party. Not good to take children too far from their homes: make getting to and from school safe; make sure the schools a clean and safe, that teachers are safe. Clean up and make safe. This means schools would have to accept policing authorities on streets and in schools. If the learning environment isn't safe, the kids (generalizing) will not learn. Parents of any ethnicity will not voluntarily send their children to an unsafe environment.

I remember when schools in my NC town were desegregated; I was devastated. I went to a 1-12 school, my parents knew my teachers, and they participated in school events. I was bused to a "white" elementary school and my whole second grade class was black with a black teacher, and all the black classes were in trailers. Even as a second grader, I couldn't understand the difference, and why we had to leave our safe place. We didn't mix until my third grade year; my teacher discriminated against the six or seven blacks in my class. She made us stay inside and do extra work during recess. The five or six of us finished high school at the top of our class. Lemons. . . lemonade. Everything bad isn't bad for you. Fast forward to ninth grade. I lived in the suburbs of Raleigh, NC and was bused downtown to go to school. I was the only black child on my bus. Those bad-a kids yelled the n-word out the window daily, and they were far from the safety of their own neighborhoods. One girl who acted like she was my friend at school told me they (and she) weren't referring to me. I told her I didn't care. And I didn't; those kids with no home training didn't define me. What they did said more about them than me. My family taught me well; my mother would have beat my behind for yelling anything out the window. I also remember as an adult both Raleigh and Seattle having issues with busing because children left home dark mornings to get to their schools a long, long way from home. It was hard on parents too. Can't people just be people with liberals? They're always experimenting with the foolish thoughts that come out of their perverted and unclean minds and causing others harm. Get on my nerves.

We had busing in Baton Rouge, La for 50 years. That's years. All it did was fill up the small communities surrounding Baton Rouge with parents wanting their kids to go to local schools. Kindergarten children in Baton Rouge had to be on a bus by 6 a.m. to go to a black community miles away and wouldn't get home til around 5 p.m. Both black and white parents hated it but the judge wouldn't end it until he retired, fifty years after he started it. So now the north can understand the south a little bit better.

Spoiler alert: 2020 has been rough on the American psyche. Folks in the U.S. are more unhappy today than they've been in nearly 50 years. This bold – yet unsurprising – conclusion comes from the COVID Response Tracking Study, conducted by NORC at the University of Chicago. It finds that just 14% of American adults say they're very happy, down from 31% who said the same in 2018. That year, 23% said they'd often or sometimes felt isolated in recent weeks. Now, 50% say that. The survey, conducted in late May, draws on nearly a half-century of research...
Will U.S. Shale Ever Return To Its Boom Days? 8 replies

U.S. shale drillers are bringing back shut in production three months after the onset of the current downturn. But steep decline rates will increasingly take hold, dragging down overall U.S. output later this year. With oil prices approaching $40 per barrel, many drillers are covering immediate operational costs. Rystad Energy estimates that “a bit more than 300,000 bpd” of shut in U.S. oil production has come back online. A total of 1.15 million barrels per day (mb/d) was shut in in April and May, and that output will “return swiftly over July and August,” JBC Energy wrote in a note.

When Michael Gutschenritter started Three Brothers Farm in Oconomowoc in 2013, he started small. As he made connections with chefs and restaurants, his business grew and his eggs became staples at local groceries and some of the area’s busiest restaurants. Last month, he doubled the number of laying hens on the farm, where they’re now producing about 2,500 eggs per day. Then in a matter of days, as restaurants shifted their business models due to the coronavirus pandemic, so did Gutschenritter.

Hundreds of former officials who served under President George W. Bush are gearing up to endorse presumptive Democratic Nominee Joe Biden. The group of officials—which include members of Mr. Bush’s cabinet and other senior officers—has reportedly formed a political action committee dubbed 43 Alumni for Biden. Mr. Bush was the 43rd president. “We know what is normal and what is abnormal, and what we are seeing is highly abnormal. The president is a danger,” Jennifer Millikin, one of the 43 Alumni organizers, who worked on Bush’s 2004 re-election campaign and later in the General Services Administration, told Reuters.

Scientists say that the new flu strain was recently discovered in pigs and they are “concerned that it could mutate further so that it can spread easily from person to person, and trigger a global outbreak,” the BBC reported. “They say, it has ‘all the hallmarks’ of being highly adapted to infect humans and needs close monitoring.

With five months until the election, things couldn’t look any worse for the president of the United States. His approval rating is down to 40%. People are getting tired of his antics and the insults he hurls at his opponents. The media is increasingly confident that, come November, the voters will elect a new chief executive. This might sound like June 2020, but I’m actually referring to June 1948 — when President Harry Truman, a Democrat, was running to keep his job against Republican Thomas Dewey. The similarities between the 1948 and 2020 elections are striking.
