THE KCPS TEST SCORE DOUBLE TAKE!!!
In fairness and because I really like this photo of Mel D. and Jodie Gasson . . .
CHECK THIS ALTERNATIVE PERSPECTIVE REGARDING TODAY'S KCPS TEST SCORE CELEBRATION!!!
Sent my way by KCPS Insiders . . .
"We are 85 percent of the way to full accreditation - This district has not been that close in decades. We have surpassed STL and their state appointed board. There is no way to look at the numbers and not see strength and improvement. The only way to draw that conclusion is to ignore the numbers and cling to skepticism that has been bred from self and political agendas. A great deal of the criticism is about personalities and politics - NOT performance. And that's a shame for students."
