SHOW-ME MORE PEOPLE SAYING NO TO MAYOR SLY JAMES AND HIS KANSAS CITY PUBLIC SCHOOL TAKEOVER PLAN!!!



Another resounding defeat for Mayor Sly and his doomed takeover plan . . .

Here's the money quote:

"The Missouri School Boards' Association is opposing a proposal to have the Kansas City mayor run the city's recently unaccredited school district."

The group notes two important facts: Around the nation, the results of Mayoral Takeovers of urban school districts are "mixed at best" AND Mayor Sly James replacing elected officials was deemed "outrageous" by the group's director.

Yeah, what's wrong with Sly? The schools are doing just fine. He should just butt out. No need for any adult supervision in the KC district. Leave it to the bureaucrats.

There are 360 million reasons Sly wants the schools, or rather their money.

If the Mare and Shitty Council were consumer products they would be illegal.

A more honest headline would have been 'Holy Shit. We found a group willing to support the same old failing model in the KCMSD'.

Sly, you were elected to be mayor, not school superintendant. Fix our roads and other infrastructure and stay out of the schools.

Sly would not be the superintendent. He would replace the board with himself and a 5-man posse. The current school board also does not act as the superintendent, but hires one, who then hires a CFO and a CAO, just as Sly is proposing for his version. So let's look at the current City Council make-up shall we...a minister, a former shop-keeper, a nail tech, the husband of a former council rep, a homemaker and former state rep, a grandmother, a former lawyer, etc., etc., etc., oh and the mastermind - lawyer mayor. Why does Sly think the school board is any worse than the city council? I guess because the school board is elected by central city residents?
