PROGRAM — Charter School

English translation below

Para mi hermana el tener acceso a una educacion de calidad por medio del programa Milwaukee Parental School Choice ha sido una gran ventaja. Nosotros llegamos a Milwaukee de Mexico, y ella no hablaba ingles. Por question de tiempo ella no pudo ingrsar a una escuela buena, y termino en una escuela publica de bajo nivel academico.

Ella no avanzo nada, y salio un poco atrasada para la High School. Me contaba de muchas cosas que pasaban en su escuela que la hacian sentir incomoda y con miedo a ir. Cuando llego el momento de buscar una nueva escuela, este programa nos ayudo a encontrar una escuela Charter. La cual es muy reconocida aqui por sus buenos valores y su buen nivel academico. Mi hermana es muy excitosa en esta escuela, participa en muchas actividades y se desarolla muy bien en su vida personal y academica, especialmente en los deportes.

Es importante que las familias de bajos recursos tengan la flexibilidad de escoger donde quieren mandar a sus hijos para recibir una educacion que cumpla con las necesidades de cada estudiante. Especialmente en cuidades como Milwaukee donde los jovenes son expuestos a muy temprana edad a cosas que pueden descarilarlos. Ese programa alivia a familias de tener que preocuparse de como acceder educacion de paga.

For my sister, having access to quality education through the Milwaukee Parental School Choice program has been a great advantage. We came to Milwaukee from Mexico, and she didn’t speak English. Because of time, she couldn’t get into a good school and ended up in a public school with a low academic level. She didn’t make any progress and was a little behind in high school. She told me about many things in her school that made her feel uncomfortable and afraid to go. When the time came to look for a new school, we were able to find a charter school. It was well recognized here for its good values ​​and its good academic rigor. My sister has been very successful in this school, and she participates in many activities and has developed in her personal and academic life, especially in sports.

Low-income families must have the flexibility to choose where they want to send their children to receive an education that meets the needs of each student. Especially in cities like Milwaukee, where young people are exposed at a very young age to things that can derail them. This program relieves families of having to worry about how to access paid education.
