Scott Walker shuts down three Waukesha schools

"We have 25 schools," says a School District of Waukesha board member in a Scott Walker defense campaign video. But according to the district's website, "There are 28 schools in the district." Off to a flying start.
"Walker, he gave us options that reduced our biggest costs."
Schools!

That page says "There are 28 schools in the district with 14 elementary schools (grades 4K-5), 3 middle schools (grades 6-8), 3 high schools (grades 9-12), and 6 charter schools. (updated 10/19/10)".

14 + 3 + 3 + 6 = 26?

Their super on their home page says "with over 12,000 pre-kindergarten through 12th grade students served in our 20 schools."

I'd prefer "more than" and "twenty" spelled out, Mr. Gray. I might cut some slack on "twelfth".

Districts often lack webmasters.

There's 28 listed in the drop-down menu on the left.

They have Kathy Nickolaus counting the number of schools.

Found some more schools in a bag in Brookfield.

This is what happens when you let lawyers do math. (Gibb's Rule #13 - Never, ever involve a lawyer!"). If you had done a little work, you would have found out the Bi-lingual program listed is at another elementary school, that 1 of the charter schools is online, and that 2 of the other charter schools are located on the same campus as 1 of the high schools. But please continue ridicule the board member.

Two of the other charter schools are located at one of the high schools ... that's three schools, dood.
