Building project for neighborhood school initiative fails

Dave Umhoefer and Alan J. Borsuk of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel found in a three-part series “Subtraction by Addition” that Milwaukee Public Schools spent $102 million on a building spree on bigger neighborhood schools but that the building program has largely failed.  Today, many of those new classrooms are empty. Declines in enrollment and falling test score have marred the schools that were the biggest recipients of the construction money.
