This week, WUWM’s “Getting There” series is looking into the issue of truancy in Milwaukee’s public schools. Today, we visit another group working to improve attendance rates in MPS buildings.
It’s just after seven o’clock on a Thursday morning at Milwaukee’s Rogers Street Academy.
Eight young adults, ranging in age from 18 to 24, line the hallways. Their cheers welcome students for another day of class.
“G-O-O-D-M-O-R-N-I-N-G, good morning! Good morning!” they chant.
