KANSAS CITY CONSERVATIVE JACK CASHILL CONTENDS THAT IT'S TIME TO BLOW-UP FAILING PUBLIC SCHOOLS LIKE OUR UNACCREDITED KANSAS CITY HOT MESS!!!
Here's his money line . . .
"The problem lies in the numbers. Although the general population of the district is more than 50 percent white, the school population is more than 90 percent non-white. Applying national trends to the local population, roughly 10,000 of the 16,700 students who attend school in the district were born without fathers in the home. In no small part as a result, nearly 90 percent of them receive free or reduced lunch.
"CEE-Trust can convene and collaborate until the Chiefs win the Super Bowl, but without the creative destruction of the whole danged district, these students will have no more chance of succeeding academically than they did last week. They will have less, actually, as family demographics are trending badly. Worse, if I know my conveners and collaborators, they will ignore the numbers and celebrate, as the cliché goes, “the modern family in all its diverse shapes and forms.” Yes, people actually say that."
Don't know how he gets away with writing stuff like that but he's not only hating on the Chiefs but also decrying KCPS hype . . . As the District takes a new shape, it's important to note many critics who are unwavering in their estimation of Kansas City Public School Fail . . .
