By Alan J. Borsuk, Journal Sentinel, Inc., April 9, 2009
“Milwaukee Public Schools could save as much as $103 million a year if they were operated like a well-‐run business, according to a much-‐anticipated report that has Gov. Jim Doyle and Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett taking steps that could lead to a takeover of the system. … It found waste in every area -‐ inefficient payroll processing, overqualified maintenance teams, even pencil sharpeners that cost more than $100. … Spending outside the classroom is about a third of total MPS spending.”
