TKC EXCLUSIVE!!! CRITICS FEAR MAYOR SLY'S KANSAS CITY PUBLIC SCHOOL TAKEOVER IS A GOP TROJAN HORSE!!!
By desperation or design Mayor Sly's plan to takeover Kansas City Public Schools has only met with real interest from Republican lawmakers in Missouri.
Representative Myron Neth, a Republican from Liberty, MO, is sponsoring and helping to author Mayor Sly's plan that still remains mostly secret.
So that really means . . .
KANSAS CITY DEMOCRATS IN THE GENERAL ASSEMBLY HAVE ALL BUT ABANDONED MAYOR SLY'S PUBLIC SCHOOL TAKEOVER PLAN!!!
TKC TIPSTERS have already told us that they wouldn't be much help not only because none of them want to tangle with MO. State Sen. Victor Callahan for no good reason but also because they aren't very useful given that they're a super-minority in both Missouri House & Senate.
So, now KICK-ASS TKC TIPSTERS advise . . .
EXPECT MAYOR SLY'S LEGISLATION TO GET BOGGED DOWN WITH A BUNCH OF MISSOURI REPUBLICAN EDUCATION SCHEMES LIKE TEACHER UNION BUSTING, DRACONIAN CUTS AND VOUCHERS!!!
In a very real way . . .
CRITICS FEAR THAT MAYOR SLY IS DELIVERING KANSAS CITY PUBLIC SCHOOLS TO MISSOURI REPUBLICANS!!!
It'll be fun to see Mayor Sly sell GOP control of The KCPS in a mostly Union controlled town, in strongly Democrat Waldo/Brookside and on the Eastside.
Given that Mayor Sly's plan is going nowhere . . . This raises a couple of interesting questions . . .
Why hasn't Mayor Sly been able to establish any support from Kansas City Democrat Representatives in the Missouri General Assembly? Sure, they'll go to press conferences with him . . . But they aren't putting their name to anything.
More importantly . . . What's the cost of Mayor Sly getting so much help from The Missouri GOP? We'll give Mayor Sly the benefit of the doubt and hope that he hasn't unwittingly involved himself and Kansas City students in a GOP vs. DEM wrestling match during an election year. However, we all know that politicos don't do ANYTHING out of the goodness of their heart and right now it seems as if Mayor Sly has politically indebted himself to Missouri Republicans . . . And they've always been hostile to Kansas City Democratic Establishment. By the way, that's the same establishment that helped elect Mayor Sly.
