MUST SEE!!! KANSAS CITY PUBLIC SCHOOL CIRCA 1957 BEFORE ACCREDITATION FAIL!!!
Recently, we've been thinking a lot about the history of Kansas City's institutions and this morning we found an exceptionally captivating clip that puts this town's public education system in perspective.
To wit . . .
CHECK THIS AMAZING VIDEO FEATURING THE HISTORY OF LOCAL PUBLIC SCHOOLS INCLUDING SOUTHWEST!!!
This trip down memory late takes us to a time before so many broken promises and a generation of FAIL ruined the KCPS or at least put the district in a constant state of perpetual "turnaround" and politicking.
More deets . . .
Here's the video description . . .
"In 1957, three high schools in the Kansas City region were recognized in a list of the 38 best high schools in the country. Sam Zeff revisits Topeka High School, Shawnee Mission (North) High School, and Southwest High School today to find out what made them great more than 50 years ago."
Notice the expression of pride in these institutions and realize that despite so many promises . . . Nowadays celebration of Kansas City Public Schools is mostly through press release and not heartfelt sentiment from current or former students.
