CHECK THE MAYOR SLY JAMES SELFIE AND SURPRISING SUPPORT FOR DISMANTLING KANSAS CITY PUBLIC SCHOOLS!!!
This afternoon Kansas City Mayor Sly James was playing around with his mobile phone and then fired off this presser showing his support for tearing apart the KCPS:
Mayor James supports elements of proposed plans for increasing student achievement in Kansas City Public Schools
“There are many ideas percolating that I support so strongly that I suggested them two years ago,” said Mayor Sly James. “Every child in this city deserves access to high-quality schools. We must first accept that the status quo isn’t good enough. There are some great stories from the district’s schools but achievement isn’t widespread. We need to look at how we can re-envision the educational landscape to replicate current success stories and bring more of the best teaching minds to our City. I do not believe that equates to the state micromanaging our local classrooms, bold actions without accountability, or shipping students from the urban core to the suburbs with the expectation that they will succeed academically, socially, or emotionally.”
This is the way public schools ends given that our exceptionally popular Mayor with a beautiful smile is considering the CONSERVATIVE RED STATE GOP PLAN to dismantle a failing district . . .
