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.

Check it:

1957 SCHOOLS

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.

Interesting video.

Ted Kennedy and bussing killed local neighborhood schools which in turn did more damage to African Americans than to whites.

Ted Kennedy is also responsible for our immigration problems today.

Has to be the niggers it's the only thing that has changed in 50 years. That and asswipes like Byron who feel niggers have to do nothing and get paid 6 figures every year to rape, kill and steal all they want and not have to do jail time.

Oh yes, it is, without a doubt, niggers. They are the proximate cause of nearly all destruction and decay in this country and probably the entire world. Niggers are a cancer...plain and simple.

Look the fuckers cause the Civil War. They been fucking up shit for hundreds of years. All because some niggers in African sold off what they thought to be stupid niggers to white ship owners to make into slaves. Wasn't no white people who went into the jungle to drag this people out. Was niggers selling niggers.

So with 2/3 if your property taxes going to a useless school district why is no one raising hell to get caps in the taxes until the district shows progress?

Ted Kennedy is also responsible for Mary Jo Kopechne.

Good Point 10:48 now if everyone would get to thinking like you do. But see they won't. As a rule the niggers don't pay property taxes directly so they don't give a fuck what the taxes are they never see it. They want the schools opened good or bad so they can send the spawn they have there for a few hours a day of freedom. They don't care if they learn anything at all. Then they only have to worry about feeding them at home if the spawn is lucky one time a day. That way they have more money for fancy clothes, Buicks, IPads, newest phones on the market, axle grease for the hair do, big TV's and of course drugs, has to have the drugs in the house along with a gun or two to protect the drugs from other niggers. That is why niggers don't vote against any school tax raises.

Look at Southwest High School and up until the last 20 years, its grads went to the top schools in the country and achieved fame. Not now.

Tony, it's not just a generation of FAIL. There's at least five generations affected from 1970, 1980, 1990, 2000 and the latest generation of FAIL is 2010. The KCPS will be bleeding well into to 2020 and beyond. People who graduated from this school system are devastated. Most graduates only being able to find gainful employment in government. Name one sustained entreprenuer from these decades that didn't sell drugs, wasn born with a silver spoon, and didn't use the government as a career path that is experiencing success.

OK!! By posting this OUTSTANDING video, TKC begins to redeem himself for some prior silly comments. Thank you.

And, thank you Mr. Sam Zeff for this great work.

We want more interesting things like this, please.

Rule #1 NEVER create a bureaucratic position without real accountability. This is what is wrong with our police, our teachers, or schools and our government in general.

Rule #2 Never pass laws that allow for abuse by an agent of the government. If you do there will be abuse by someone.

H E L L O NSA, Homelamd Security, ATF, USPS, Department of Revenue, IRS and scores of others.
