Milwaukee Public Schools: Half a million budgeted for BLM

MPS Spending $471,073 on 'Black Lives Matter'
Quote:
Milwaukee Public Schools has included nearly a half million dollars for "Black Lives Matter" in its list of expenditures included the 2017 budget proposal it published in Wednesday's Milwaukee Journal Sentinel:

mps black lives matter

Interestingly enough, the district plans to spend nearly as much on "Black Lives Matter" as it plans to spend on College Access Centers, Universal Driver Education, and Advanced Studies of World Languages.

"We’re doing this work because national and local studies tell us young men of color in Wisconsin and Milwaukee are more likely to be represented disproportionally in the justice system and less likely to be represented proportionally in colleges and universities," said MPS spokesman Tony Tagliavia.
Tax dollars, unreal

If it's coming from their local tax revenues, that's their call, but woof.....seems like a high dollar amount.

"The specific expenditures, which are also outlined in the budget proposal, are for three social studies teachers ($260,889 for salary and benefits for all three) and staff development (training) for other employees ($210,184)," Tagliavia said. "That brings the total to the $471,073 you mentioned."

This raises several interesting questions about just how this money is being spent.

Since MPS's budget lists Black Lives Matter as a partner organization, will Black Lives Matter have input in this "staff development?" Or will it have a role in hiring or staffing the three new social studies teachers? Moreover, will Black Lives Matter have a role in shaping the curriculum that these teachers use?

Tagliavia insisted that "no funding is going to a Black Lives Matter Organization," saying that "the name speaks to some of the issues raised by the movement, specifically racial disparities in education."

Furthermore, MPS says that it is not partnering with any official "Black Lives Matter" group...only a group of people who espouse the values of the "Black Lives Matter" movement.

Okay then.

Doesn't seem that bad to me. I think it's unfortunate that they chose to attach the BLM name to it, though.

^^^good clarification. I should have clicked the link. The OP made it appear as if money was being used to support the BLM organization directly.

The budget line literally says black lives matter

So do you think the guy was lying when he said no money would be going to an outside BLM organization?

EDIT: in all likelihood, the three social studies teachers they will hire will be dyed-in-the-wool SJWs, but that's probably not all that different from most of the teachers they hire anyway.

I'm just pointing out that a review of the actual budget reads "black lives matter" (according to the article). It isn't misleading if that is what it actually says.

I think it was a poor choice for the line item, but I'm at least relieved that they don't appear to just be giving money to BLM willy-nilly.
