Nobody Likes Missouri Ed Commish Nicastro
No argument here that this Missouri lady has led an often divisive and controversial fight to find an alternative to old and busted Kansas City Public Schools . . .
Newspaper: "The Missouri education commissioner says she hopes the controversy over the way CEE-Trust won a contract to study Kansas City won't derail what she says is a critical process to rethink the way the state will deal with struggling schools."
From the perspective of local educators and advocates for "scholars" (ugh) . . . The process has been rigged, unfair and fails to account for recent progress . . . On the other hand . . . KCPS reform has been 30 years in the making with a lot of promises but very few sustainable gains.
