Must read article in this morning’s Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. Willie Jude, a tireless educator when I knew him in the 1990’s, retired Friday after 32-years as a teacher and administrator in the Milwaukee Public Schools. He cuts loose on some of the problems he sees. Story notes that as a kid in Mississippi he never saw an actual telephone until a teacher brought one to his high school class. But his parents, he notes, provided things that too many kids today don’t get: high expectations and discipline.
You’ve got to read all of his quotes, bulleted at the end of the article.
