SHAME ON THE KANSAS CITY STAR FOR SPREADING THE IRRESPONSIBLE MTYH THAT WHITE PEOPLE ARE CONSIDERING A RETURN TO KANSAS CITY PUBLIC SCHOOLS!!!
The Kansas City Star publishes pure fiction this Sunday . . .
"White families weigh return to Kansas City school district"
This kind of urban legend has been touted in Kansas City for decades.
The best mythbusting document that fact checks these constant myths is right here:
Money and School Performance: Lessons from the Kansas City Desegregation Experiment
No, it's not a screed against desegregation . . . Only an explanation that Missouri threw BILLIONS of dollars down the drain in order to attract white people and it never worked and left the schools even more damaged then before the experiment took place.
Also . . . It's also kind of offensive that our Dead Tree Media seems to suggest that white families would somehow improve the district.
A look at reality on the ground level is that and influx of Latinos and Southeast Asian students is changing the district for the better.
Meanwhile, mainstream media touts and old school style of thinking that has been proven to be not only tacitly racist but also completely unworkable and mostly a waste of time.
