TKC OVERNIGHT: KANSAS CITY MAYOR SLY READS TO "SCHOLARS" IN NKC!!!
Kansas City's Mayor Sly takes a moment to read to students in a much nicer part of the metro area in a district that hasn't lost accreditation.
LINC description on VIMEO:
"On Friday, Oct. 12, Kansas City, Missouri Mayor Sly James visited Topping Elementary in the North Kansas City School District to read to students in the LINC after-school program. Students were also given one book donated by Rosen Publishing and the Mid-Continent Public Library. In attendance were Superintendent Dr. Todd White and NKCSD board members."
Topping students read books with Mayor James
Remember that Mayor Sly's reading program (actually, a pretty good idea) came about in the aftermath of Mayor Sly's failed effort to takeover the KCPS.
And that might be the lesson Mayor Sly can teach all of Kansas City. Time after time he manages to pull out a victory from the jaws of defeat . . . It's an inspiring tale that's much nicer than the costly "little engine that could" otherwise known at the Downtown Toy Train Streetcar nightmare.
