TKC BREAKING AND EXCLUSIVE NEWS!!! KANSAS CITY PUBLIC SCHOOL BOARD MEMBER CRISPIN REA CHALLENGES A RECENT KSHB INVESTIGATION!!!
A recent KSHB Investigation has resulted in the resignation of The Chief Operating Officer of The Kansas City Public School District. The controversy stems from a contract bidding process that KSHB EXCLUSIVELY reported on with some fascinating detail.
However . . .
SCHOOL BOARD MEMBER CRISPIN REA CHALLENGES THE REPORTING OF KSHB AND CLAIMS THAT IMPORTANT DETAILS WERE OMITTED FROM THE STORY!!!
Here's what School Board Member had to say in the aftermath of a critical resignation:
"REAL TALK: This is an incredibly unfortunate piece of news. Facts that completely vindicate Gen. Rounds of any wrong doing were intentionally omitted from this story. Instead, if you are a faithful KSHB viewer you were served weak allegations and inferences. I have very rarely directly aired media grievances whether it was when I worked in the Mayors Office or served on the School Board. That being said, my obligation rests with protecting the parents and students in the School District. Today, they lost a dependable and honest administrator as a result of misleading and ambitious investigative reporting. We must demand better from those we trust."
School Board Member Rea defends the work and the integrity of Gen. Rounds in this answer to KSHB.
There might be more details forthcoming regarding specifics about facts that the KCPS argue were omitted. What I know for sure is that this discussion revolves almost entirely around the mechanics of the deal that was profiled by KSHB and the contention by many in the KCPS that Gen. Rounds did not act unethically when it came to making the deal that was profiled by KSHB.
