OP-ED From Rocketship Transformation Prep Parent Ieshia Wiggins:
“For the first time ever, a group of parents from public district, public charter, and private choice schools came together to make their voices heard in our mayoral election. On March 19th and 29th, hundreds of parents came together with the support of Rocketship Public Schools and City Forward Collective to ask mayoral candidates Cavalier ‘Chevy’ Johnson and Robert ‘Bob’ Donovan about their priorities for our kids, our neighborhoods, and our city.
Milwaukee had an education-focused forum led by parents, for parents, to help inform parents from all backgrounds about who is running to lead our city. We are not an interest group that gives money to candidates, we are not giving endorsements to anyone. We are simply parents who care deeply about the future of our children and who will create that future in our city.”
