About this title


This is a book talking about the changes that have taken place in the Milwaukee Public Schools over a period of fifty years. It is seen from the eyes of a man who went from student to teacher, in the school system and worked year round at various other MPS jobs. As a student in the 1950's and 1960's, the high quality of the school system was evident. The changes started to be noticed in the 1970's, as the authors teaching career was beginning. By the year 2004, the time of retirement, Milwaukee has become a failing school system mired in mediocrity. The story of a young boy who had the opportunity to go to school in a fine school system becomes a teacher in the system and sees the changes that take place first hand. The system that had been outstanding was being attacked on all sides for its failures. This all takes place in one lifetime - one career. How bad has it become? After reading these five decades of stories and events - you decide!

About the Author:

Michael Wenzel is a life long resident of the city of Milwaukee and a 1967 graduate of Boy's Technical High School. Wenzel received a Bachelor's of Science degree from the University of Wisconsin - Milwaukee in 1971. The degree saw an emphasis in Physical Education and Recreation. Wenzel was awarded the Southside Lions Club Alumni Award in 1967 for meritorious service to Boy's Technical High School, which acted as a steppingstone to a career in teaching. The Optimist Club of Milwaukee awarded the Optimist of the Year Award to Mr. Wenzel in 1987. This award highlights extra time and effort working with boys and girls of all ages. In 2004, the Wisconsin Senate, on the motion of State Senator Tim Carpenter, presented Wenzel a citation commending him for his outstanding career working, coaching, and teaching the children of Wisconsin upon this occasion of his retirement. The Wisconsin Senate offered their thanks for outstanding effort on behalf of Wisconsin kids. Michael Wenzel continues to see his career choice move forward in the work of his son, Marcus, who is teaching Health and Physical Education at Bay View High School, which is also a Milwaukee Public School. Michael Wenzel has spent five decades totally involved in some capacity with the Milwaukee Public Schools. Wenzel intends to continue providing service to the school system and the children of the Milwaukee Public Schools.
