MMAC has been engaged in efforts to increase educational attainment and school quality for more than 25 years. Eliminating the education gap between white and Black and Brown students is critical to meeting the workforce needs of the region’s employers.
Out of a 20-peer region group, in the five most prosperous metros for African Americans, 24-31% of their adult population held a bachelor’s degree or higher. Milwaukee is at the bottom of that list, with only 15% (top 5: Raleigh, San Antonio, Nashville, Baltimore and Charlotte).
GOAL: Add 5,000 quality seats for publicly funded K-12 students in the City of Milwaukee by 2025
Metric: Number of students served by schools rated 3 stars or higher according to the state’s annual quality report card.
