Proposed budget makes all-male charter school in Madison less likely

The chances the Madison School Board will approve an Urban League proposal for an all-male charter school geared toward low-income minorities are dwindling. "We’re not claiming it’s going to be some amazing financial deal for the district," Deroche-Perez said. "What we’re trying to do is say you have been charged with educating all the students in (the district). The data shows you are not able to do that successfully, particularly with poor African-American and Latino students. It’s time you make an investment in a group that will do something about that."
