SHOW-ME DEBATE NOT PROPAGANDA: MISSOURI SCHOOL PLAN BETTER THAN WAITING FOR KCPS TURNAROUND?!?!
Here's what has been lost in a recent citywide propaganda blast disguised as news . . .
IS STATEWIDE CONTROL FOR FAILING KANSAS CITY SCHOOLS BETTER THAN WAITING ON A NEVER-ENDING LITANY OF PROMISES REGARDING THE KCPS?!?!
Of course proponents, Administrators, teachers and sexually harassing employees of the district are going to sing praises of the KCPS and buy the line about "stabilization" but there really aren't many advocates with the best interests of students in mind.
Maybe "conspiring" against the KCPS isn't such a bad thing.
So, like it or not . . . This blog is the best place to get an accurate view of Kansas City opinion on the future of public education in Missouri. Natch.
SHOULD WE WAIT ANOTHER 25 YEARS FOR A KCPS TURNAROUND OR ALLOW MISSOURI REPUBLICANS TO TAKEOVER KANSAS CITY PUBLIC SCHOOLS MIRED IN FAILURE?!?!

It's important to understand that the OVERWHELMING MAJORITY OF KANSAS CITY RESIDENTS have voted with their feet in the long term and have abandoned the district and surrounding neighborhoods to find better options for their children given enrollment stats over the past generation. Currently, there's hope that THE UNACCREDITED STATUS OF THE KCPS will allow more students to transfer out without having to leave the city.
