TKC QUESTION: WOULD YOU SEND YOUR KIDS TO KANSAS CITY PUBLIC SCHOOLS?!?
It seems that the big picture is often lost in a constant political debate over public education in Kansas City.
Accordingly . . .
- Given that Mayor Sly is calling on State politicos to change the school transfer law that was upheld today by the Missouri Supreme Court . . .
- Given that Superintendent Dr. Stephen Green says that he doesn't expect many transfers ...
- Also consider that Dr. Green doesn't even live in the district or Kansas City for that matter and Mayor Sly mostly sent his children to pricey private schools . . .
Knowing all this . . . Considering the current hot mess and even "stabilization" that has been touted . . .
The question is:
WOULD YOU SEND YOUR KIDS TO KANSAS CITY PUBLIC SCHOOLS?!?
Like it or not, and acknowledging there are other facets to this debate we need to explore, the answer to this one is the real measure of progress and even a cursory glance at enrollment numbers reveal that a great many people have responded "NO" to this question with their feet and not words.
