TKC SCHOLARLY QUESTION: SHOULD WE PROTEST TO SAVE OUR UNACCREDITED KANSAS CITY PUBLIC SCHOOLS?!?!
My favorite Woody Allen quote pretty much sums up my feelings about the struggle to keep Kansas City control of our worst school district:
“There's an old joke - um... two elderly women are at a Catskill mountain resort, and one of 'em says, "Boy, the food at this place is really terrible." The other one says, "Yeah, I know; and such small portions." Well, that's essentially how I feel about life - full of loneliness, and misery, and suffering, and unhappiness, and it's all over much too quickly.”
And that sentiment leads us to this Kansas City morning headline:
Rally planned over KCPS recommendations
Basically, a group of people with their income and connections pretty much tied up in the district are going to desperately fight for control of a District that doesn't work simply because it's theirs and without much concern for students or the hope of achieving anything better than upbeat presser copy.
The Bill Gates Foundation education study group results come out later today and it's unlikely they'll find a better solution that doesn't involve a match and lighter fluid.
