KICK-ASS TKC TIPSTERS RECENTLY SENT A LINK TO A MISSOURI BILL RECENTLY FILED THAT COULD SPEED UP A TAKEOVER OF KANSAS CITY PUBLIC SCHOOLS!!!
"SB 7 – This act removes the two-year waiting period that exists between the classification of a school district as unaccredited and the lapse of the district's corporate organization. Instead, when the State Board of Education classifies a district as unaccredited, it must review the governance of the district to establish the conditions under which the existing school board will continue to govern or determine the date on which the district will lapse and determine an alternative governing structure for the district."
Remember back to last session and realize that it was mostly politics and dumb luck that prevented a takeover of the KCPS.
And now we wonder . . .
Given that there hasn't been much progress toward accreditation . . . Will the KCPS stay lucky or will GOP legislators and advocates for Kansas City education reform press a bit harder to end a cycle of fail that has taken place over more than a generation.
Whatever the case . . . This session of the Missouri General Assembly with a brand new GOP veto-proof majority will be interesting and just might finally elicit a bit of change for KC Proper.
