Protestors For ACE Schools Desperately Protest Homes of KCPS Board Members!!!
Here's another reason why so many people avoid Kansas City politics . . .
Fox4: "The (Afrikan Centered Education) charter school’s contract with the district is set to expire on June 30th, and the district plans on taking over immediately. That plan hasn’t set well with ACE parents like Spark Bookhart, who this week joined other parents protesting at the home of KCSD board member Derek Richey."
While we agree that School Board Member Derek Richey does make a good political punching bag . . .
This strategy doesn't do much good now that the decision is nearly complete.
And for the record . . . When ACE supporters talk about KCPS failure . . . It's important to remember that THE VERY SAME ACE SCHOOLS THEY'RE TOUTING ALSO FAILED TO MEET MAP TEST EXPECTATIONS RIGHT ALONG WITH SO MANY OTHER SCHOOLS IN THE DISTRICT!!!
This is an often overlooked FACT that contradicts a few of these flimsy arguments in support of outgoing ACE School Management.
Still . . . Protests are fun and teach scholars a valuable lesson that bad test scores are par for the course but taking to the streets is only necessary when contracts expire.
