Howard Fuller withdraws proposal to locate charter school at Milwaukee North Division

March 16, 2018

Longtime school choice advocate Howard Fuller has withdrawn a proposal to move his charter school into Milwaukee’s North Division High School rather than face what was certain to be a brutal approval process.

Fuller had the support of Milwaukee Public Schools Superintendent Darienne Driver and some board members but withdrew because of mounting opposition led by the Milwaukee Teachers’ Education Association that he said “pitted black people against black people.”

“And we’re not going to be part of that,” said Fuller, who had proposed “co-locating” Milwaukee Collegiate Academy inside the sprawling North Division campus at 1011 W. Center St.
