Shocker: School Named After Obama ‘Fails to Meet Expectations’

Posted by on Nov 13, 2014 at 9:42 am

What was their curriculum, how to maximize vacation time and playing golf?

 It is a sad twist of political irony with serious consequences for students. The only school in Wisconsin currently named for President Barack Obama rates quite dismally on a state report card designed to measure school success.

President Obama himself, according to the latest statewide survey by the Marquette University Law School, has an approval rating of only 41.4% in the state.

The Barack Obama School of Career and Technical Education is part of Milwaukee Public Schools. It is located on North Sherman Boulevard in Milwaukee and during the 2012 presidential election the school served as a polling location.

According to data from the state Department of Public Instruction, for the 2013-2014 academic year the school, listed as Obama Elementary, scored 39.4 out of 100.

On a grading scale, that means Obama Elementary is well below failing. Only 14 schools faired worse on the state report card.

“Fails to Meet Expectations” reads the entry next to the school’s score. Each school’s score is calculated by looking at specific student achievement in areas like reading and math, and the school’s ability to improve student scores, among other things.

Hard to imagine how a school named after a legendary slacker is underachieving.

    Are the pinko commie rats in the people’s republic of Wisconsin busy reading Das Kapital and smearing feces on the capital building or something?
    That is a low approval rating for a blue communist state.

    So whats the worst school? Is it the Hillary Rodam Clinton Academy for Cosmetology? Are the 13 other worse schools in between named after Obama’s former staffers?

    Once you get outside the influence of the Milwaukee metro area, Wisconsin isn’t a half bad state.

    So I just went and looked at the school on Google Maps. The facade looks like a Prison cell block with a Barak Obama campaign sign planted haphazardly by the watchful eye of a security camera. Far to the left is the sign for the actual name Milwaukee School of Career and Technical Education placed like its avoiding the BO campaign sign. I bet once BO is gone his campaign sign comes down

    It looks like some dork in the Obama campaign pulled some strings and got the sign stuck the sign up there for the election which makes sense considering the student body is 96% black.
