TKC BREAKING AND EXCLUSIVE NEWS!!! LOOK AT KANSAS CITY PUBLIC SCHOOLS TOUTING THE POWER OF A DIPLOMA FROM AN UNACCREDITED DISTRICT!!!
We hear that there's news coming soon about "progress" toward accreditation from The KCPS that's tantamount to treading water in the grand scheme of Kansas City's troubled public education history.
However . . . What's more fun is to take apart marketing materials that might have escaped the public eye . . .
CHECK OUT A KCPS FLYER TOUTING A DIPLOMA FROM AN UNACCREDITED SCHOOL DISTRICT!!!
There's a Catch-22 here . . . If Kansas City Public Schools really performed a decent job educating "scholars" soon to graduate high school then those students would IMMEDIATELY recognize this bit of propaganda as nothing more than a desperate attempt at politically motivated persuasion.
On the bright side, the design is very nice . . .

"Fact: This school district's lack of accreditation won't prevent you from attending a top college or university.
There's only one way to college - hard work, good study habits, high test scores and consistent attendance. Keep paving the way to a better future by giving your best effort and excelling in high school today.
Nothing, even lack of accreditation by KCPS, will hold you back."
This is part of a marketing campaign that includes students, faculty and even a few janitors and security guards talking about KCPS accreditation or lack thereof along with even more happy talk.
The KCPS is clearly putting on a seminar in propaganda and we can only hope that their effort toward reacquiring accreditation is as impressive as the work they've done in attempting to explain away the EPIC FAIL involved in losing it in the first place.
