Partnerships for Education:
Strengthening Our Schools

Partnerships for Education is a community-wide effort to revitalize our urban schools supported by over $26 million in federal grants. UWM, the Milwaukee Public Schools and other educational institutions throughout Southeastern Wisconsin are joining forces to prepare more students for college, particularly those from culturally and linguistically diverse families; create a strong teacher workforce prepared to meet the challenges of urban schools and integrate information technology into teacher education programs.

Through this initiative, UWM is playing a lead role in the Milwaukee Partnership Academy, a community-wide effort to recruit and retain top quality teachers. Partnerships for Education is also assisting in the development of curriculum for the new Lynde and Harry Bradley School of Technology and Trade and helping several elementary schools enhance the learning environment with educational software.
