Milwaukee police responded to Barack Obama School of Career and Technical Education on Wednesday afternoon, September 30th for an altercation.
Officers were dispatched to the school shortly before 2:30 p.m. to back up school resource officers.
Police say there were 30 to 40 students and outsiders fighting inside the school.
No major injuries were reported.
We’re told a pregnant student, who was being evaluated by a paramedic and apparently didn’t want to leave the fight, kicked a pregnant paramedic.
You should all be shocked to discover this school, like its namesake, is a colossal failure.
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. Obama Elementary had its worst score in reading achievement, which came in at 2.2 out of 50.
Fails to meet expectations? Unexpected!
