Newspaper Touts Unaccredited Kansas City Public School District 'Stabilization' And Academic Improvement In Order To Slam Missouri DESE Commish Nicastro
Newspaper spin touting a momentous achievement that still didn't qualify for accreditation: "They show Missouri Education Commissioner Chris Nicastro was eager to create a new school system, even as the long-beleaguered but stabilized district was preparing to celebrate its best academic improvement in years."
What the newspaper write-up didn't mention . . .
Significant number of parents who still DESPERATELY want out of the District. . .
Ongoing and mostly unreported level of VIOLENCE AMONG KCPS STUDENTS that is mostly kept secret . . .
Teacher's Union purging that has creative a growing DIVIDE among administrators and workers in the long suffering district . . .
Like it or not, noting "stabilization" for the KCPS isn't really backed up by the reality of the district that has only improved its skills in media management.
