The fight for school turf continues on Milwaukee’s Northeast side.
A military-style school for at-risk kids wants to buy a former Milwaukee Public School building in the Riverwest area.
Earlier this week, the City of Milwaukee approved the sale but still has to decide whether the school is the right fit for the neighborhood.
Many residents in the area say it’s not, and they told city officials as much during a meeting Thursday night. They’re concerned about some of the program’s tactics.
