TKC BREAKING AND EXCLUSIVE NEWS!!! UPCOMING KANSAS CITY ONLINE CHARTER HIGH SCHOOL SOON TO DECIMATE ENROLLMENT AT OLD KCPS INSTITUTIONS!!!



This is the way the Kansas City Public School District ends . . . Not with a Missouri takeover but with Internets technology that will facilitate an alternative online high school.

To wit . . .

TOP ECHELON KANSAS CITY INSIDERS WARN US OF AN UPCOMING ONLINE CHARTER HIGH SCHOOL THAT IS SOON TO CHANGE THE GAME FOR SECONDARY PUBLIC EDUCATION IN KANSAS CITY!!!

A brief description . . .

"Imagine a high school where students can learn at their own pace and the best teachers in the city are only a click away. A high school that doesn't need an overwhelming security presence, metal detectors or teachers taking time away from their lesson plan to play babysitter . . . That is the promise of online education and it will completely transform high school in Kansas City's urban core."

Another insider tells us . . .

"This is about us taking education back. Our kids won't have to be worried about being called a 'sellout' for doing well in school and the arson, fights, bullying and other discipline problems will essentially disappear when we put this online high school into place."

Another perspective . . .

"Online learning is the future, students can focus on lessons without having to sit next to Trayvon and worry about getting their head bashed."

Even better . . . Independent instructors might be afforded an improved salary that's commiserate with their performance and demand.

A bit of foreshadowing of this upcoming move . . . Let's not forget that Missouri is making great strides in delivering online options for higher education with the new Western Governors University. This online move offers a hint of what's to come to Kansas City.

Oh yeah . . . And the upcoming Kansas City Online Charter High School plan kind of explains why the teacher's union now hates technology and computers and wants to keep them away from students.

Insiders working on this plan are looking to Google Fiber for more support and . . .

THE UPCOMING KANSAS CITY ONLINE CHARTER HIGH SCHOOL COULD REMOVE THOUSANDS OF STUDENTS FROM DANGEROUS TRADITIONAL KCPS CONTROLLED ENVIRONMENTS!!!

Sadly, I guess that means even more abandoned buildings in Kansas City neighborhoods . . .

Still . . .

Whether we're discussing the topic of white kids burned or mediocre "provisional accreditation" touted as progress . . . The KCPS continues to fall apart and rather than count on lazy GOP politicos or the Democratic Machine that runs this town to fix anything . . . Locals are looking to the Internets for hope and the power to move education out of old school classrooms and on to the Internets.

Developing . . .

Finally posted this TKC?

Congratulations.

The old high schools are a thing of the past. I just hope somebody can find a way to tear them down. The industrial age is over, time to use technology to bring students into the real world.

Right. The "real world" where one day people will all be sitting in their mother's basements tapping out piecemeal freelance "work" for low wages and no benefits.

Kinda like what Tony is doing now.

Yep, nothing like a "virtual" high school where kids who aren't motivated to complete high school now will suddenly turn into scholars with all sorts of real world work skills.

These high schoolers can also play football games online, and hook up with all sorts of cuties. Until they find out that the hottie they have been exchanging hot messages with is some 57-year-old fat white guy in New Jersey.

In Korea online education is standard. The U.S. is falling behind because of losers like @ 9:19.

The Korean culture most strongly emphasizes obedience and hard study. Kids grow up with it.

Not so American children. I dont' think absentee parents and easily distracted US children have the discipline necessary to do what Korean children do.

Yes, US edjakayshun needs serious revamping, more technology, less reliance on textbook curricula. More media.... but our little shits need to BE there, or they'll be surfing the internet, sleeping, eating and screwing each other or getting high when mom's at work.

better to learn at home then get beaten at kc schools.

Ah, I see we now have two experts on "Korean culture."

This is another thing about the online culture. It's just filled with instant experts. Even on Korean culture.

And for those who think that "US edjakayshun" hasn't been seriously revanmped over the past 20 years with much more reliance on technology and far less reliance to textbook curricula, well, they haven't a clue what they are talking about and think everything is the same as the day they graduated many moons ago.

Now I submit that the biggest problem facing the U.S. today is not an educational system supposedly stuck in a place it hasn't been stuck in since "A Nation At Risk" was issued 39 years ago.

The biggest problem we face is numbnuts who know it all and think they got it all figured out, when they truly don't know 1 percent of what they think they know.

One of the things that truly made this nation great was intellectual curiosity and the freedom to set creativity loose.

Sadly, however, we get now get lectured by Internet experts on any given subject who lack both the curiosity to discover there is always a lot more to learn, or the creativity to think outside a box someone else draws for them.

And yes, "Boy, aren't those Korean kids smart and well-disciplined" is a box someone else has drawn for you, and you aren't the least bit curious to find out if it is really true, lest it upset your precious prejudices, and ring an alarm that perhaps you don't know everything.

And that is sad.

What a hoot. As if there is an argument about the KCPS providing an education that would translate into a job in the real world.

This online idea is fuckin awesome!! Anything to keep your kids from getting THIS

thttp://kennsvideos.blogspot.com/2013/08/13-year-old-white-kid-beaten-by-3.html

type of beatdown from drug dealing thug members of the "Protected Class" who will no doubt sue the school, the victim, the cops and the kid for racism after he gets out of the hospital.

Keep the little fuckers at home on the computer and off of the streets. The eudcation these fucks aquire is TOPS a 2nd grade education.

Check out that video from last week. It is exactly what parents have to fear in a school with a large population of blacks.

Bullshit!!

While Missourians struggle to pay the bills under a dismal economy and the high taxation foisted upon them by the U.S. Federal Government, Governor Nixon and his entourage of school board members, and labor unions – sitting in their gilded chairs high above the rabble – contemptibly attempt to throw huge amounts of our money towards Missouri public education. Why? Because school districts throughout Missouri have grown hungry for money, and simply don’t want to do without ipads for their students, fancy meal programs, after-school baby-sitting, sporting complexes, and so on.

For example, in the July 31, 2013 edition of the Platte County Landmark, one individual wrote that at a recent school board meeting, the superintendent of the Platte County R-3 School District “spoke specifically about HB253, and recommended that our state representatives support Governor Nixon’s veto of the bill. He told the audience they should ask their representatives to vote against over-riding the veto and encouraged attendees to contact the National Education Association and the National School Boards Association and watch for ‘critical alerts’ to activate ‘grass-roots’ efforts.”

CONTINUED!!

HB 253, which is designed to bring economic relief to hard-working Missourians, would change the laws regarding the streamlined sales and use tax agreement, tax amnesty, the community development district tax, income tax, sales and use taxes, use tax nexus, and the transportation development tax. (Read about the bill here) As such, school districts are concerned that they would lose money through such a bill.

But with schools engaging in politics by opposing efforts to limit government expenditures through bills like HB 254 – especially as the Missouri economy flounders under a debt load of $45,833,256,000 – reveals just how absurdly oblivious public schools are to the plight of our people. Especially when the State and National economy literally threatens to collapses under unthinkably vast amounts of nanny-state expenditures.

The site, State Budget Solutions states that, “Each year, the United State spends billions of dollars on education. In 2010, total annual spending on education exceeded $809 billion dollars. Although it is unclear whether that figure is adjusted for inflation, that amount is higher than any other industrialized nation, and more than the spending of France, Germany, Japan, Brazil, the United Kingdom, Canada, and Australia combined….Despite higher levels of funding, student test scores are substantially lower in the United States than in many other nations.”

Missouri Government will dole out around $3,000,000,000 on its K-12 public education system this year – which is about 13 percent of the State budget. But let’s be real, can $3,000,000,000 ever replace involved parents and teachers interested not in toys – but actual teaching? Sure, times are different. But recall that some of our finest schools in Missouri history produced highly educated children not in fantastical learning environments resplendent with technological toys and teaching aids….but in one-room schoolhouses with an outhouse out back.

Actually 9:23 the U.S. is falling behind because our test scores include all of our minorities. Take the Blue Valley SD for example and scores are good. If an immigrant shows up on test day and doesn't speak a word of English, his/her test score is included. And take one guess how our inner city "scholors" do on the same tests. Considering their "parents" dropped out at 14 they have keeds that are idiots too.

There was a kid in my son's high school class that was home schooled but came for Orchestra and some art classes. He claimed that because they are taxpayers he had a right to attend but had to transport him themselves. Maybe they just had a good lawyer? I think the Admin tried to hide that one.

Will the kids be bombarded with "Google Ads" and breaking newz tweets during their online studies?

"Fancy meal programs?"

Really, that's what you think of school lunch. Back to the drawing board GOP sucker.

What a wonderful snow job! Kids can't meet muster going to school so lets let them set at home and cheat on the computer and they will all be scholars. Oh Well! Instead of wasting tax dollars on worthless schools we can take out the middle men and just pay welfare directly to the unemployed graduates.

Anyone who has ever seen the typical online curriculum knows damn well it is damn near a free pass to a diploma. I guess if you lower the standards enough they will come.
