Be more than just a role model. Be a teacher. The need is real. One third of all ninth grade students in Milwaukee Public Schools in 2006-2007 were repeating the grade having failed to earn enough credits to move on. (1) Seven out of 10 of our tenth grade students are failing in math and six out of 10 are failing in reading. Only 68% of our students graduate from high school (compared to 91% in the rest of the state). (2) Milwaukee's students need a brighter future. This is your opportunity to stop watching from the sidelines and to take action. Start your career as an educator by applying to Milwaukee Teaching Fellows.
