Milwaukee AP veterans of 1990s leverage project bonds

Lilly Simmons and Paulette Bangura to drive the Milwaukee Algebra Project which served students in school and after school since the 1990s.  This fall, Bangura teamed up with Simmons to organize and pilot a Math Literacy Leadership initiative as part of Bangura’s African Centered Global Education Project, which she has directed for over ten years through the University of Wisconsin- Milwaukee School of Continuing Education. This October, Simmons and Bangura invited Bill Crombie, AP Director of Professional Development, to lead two weekend-long workshops for 20 teachers as an introduction to Algebra Project curriculum and pedagogy.  Bangura seeks to introduce alternative ways for teachers to reach students. “The levels of performance of the students is low―Milwaukee has a 40% graduate rate. Let’s get busy to create a pathway,” she said.
