TAKING ANOTHER GOOD LOOK @ THE KANSAS CITY SCHOOL CHOICE RALLY!!!



A glimpse at the Union Station party put on by Rex Sinquefield cash . . . Word to Alice Goodwin:

KSHB: A group of national education activists visited Kansas City on Monday evening with one message: Parents should be able to choose which schools their children attend.

Fox4: Parents Rally for More Options, Freedom to Spend Education Money

A few of you d-bags have given TKC a big of grief about "supporting" this thing . . . The reality of the sitch is that it's mostly a white/middle-class movement right now despite the fact that it's pretty hard for any demographic to argue for KCPS success at this point.

Still, at the end of the day, while it's not practical . . . TKC has always believed that Catholic Schools are the best option in order to learn the rigid lessons that God loves upper-middle-class white people more than anybody else THEN come to the realization that isn't true at all AND THEN discover just about everything is a lie created in order to manufacture consent.

The robo calls in support of this thing grew tiresome.

I was at Union Station for a meeting at the time this was going on. Rex didn't get his money's worth - not a very big crowd.

That's because we all see through the charter school bullshit. It's a failed premise, and they don't work. Charter schools have a worse track record than even KCPS.

But because charter schools play well into the neoconservative agenda where a narrowly defined view of god and corporations run everything, they're well liked by the elitist class.

how is it a bad thing that parents should be able to choose what school their kids go to?

No shit. Let's throw money away at kcps without any expectation of competence, let alone excellence.

Agree. If KCPS was a failing business we would either re-structure or re-invent it; or we would shut it down and turn to other options/products/markets...

Our education system needs to be re-invented to better engage and prepare our kids for today's global marketplace. We all see it, why can't we act???

Trying to compare a public school to a business is a classic retard move. Businesses can tell a customer to fuck off. However, a school can't just boot a kid out the door because he doesn't learn. Schools are among the most heavily regulated organizations in the country. You have elected officials with no experience or common sense deciding curriculum, policies, procedures, staffing, etc.. and they don't know shit.
