Monday on Lake Effect: Financial Condition of MPS, Frank Zeidler's Legacy, Wisconsin Cheese

May 19, 2017

Monday on Lake Effect:

As this school year winds down, we look at the financial condition of Milwaukee Public Schools from the Public Policy Forum's annual review. Then we celebrate the legacy of former mayor Frank Zeidler with his daughter, Anita, and historian John Gurda. We hear poems from a new collection by local poet Stephen Anderson and learn why Wisconsin's climate is ideal for making European cheeses.
