No summer school for Demond Means

Hey, MPS is not going to screw up this guy’s Summerfest plans. Milwaukee Opportunity Schools Partnership Program (OSPP) Commissioner Demond Means announced his resignation on Wednesday, just hours after WTMJ’s Charlie Sykes wondered out loud on the air, “Why doesn’t he just quit?” (No, really – at 28:30[1].) I have reaction from just about everybody at Watchdog.org[2]. Means said he had promised that he was not going to force anything on MPS regarding the OSPP. Apparently he was right.

So much for even this minuscule reform of just one failing school, still yet-to-be-named. The ball is now in Milwaukee County Executive Chris Abele’s court.

MEANS OUT: Abele will have to find a new wingman for the OSPP.
