Mary Sanchez Clueless On KCPS

Mary Sanchez Conspiracy Theory: "The Kansas City school board's vote to delay the sale of Westport High School stoked accusations that members who voted "no" did so out of a reluctance to see a charter school take over the space. The idea that charters are staking out too much turf in the district isn't new, but it doesn't hold the same clout it once did."

Every well-run and effective charter school like Lafayette gives parents who really care about their kids' education an opportunity to bail out of the dysfunction, dangers, and utter chaos of KCPS.
And every time that happens, the money follows the student.
So, like a really bad restaurant that tries to keep going by getting the city to prevent competition by making unfair zoning decisions instead of improving their food, KCPS tries to defend its mediocrity with games like went on in Westport.
Families who can are leaving the district because of crime and violence, lack of basic services, and the continued inability of KCPS to function like an actual school district, including even keeping kids safe in their buildings.
Someone please remove the life support from this comatose body.

Who were the "no" votes? It appears Joe Jackson and Airick West were two of them, but who were the other two ninnies?

Again this was done for Crispin Rea, the coward who never takes hard votes or leads. They kicked the can to the next school board so he wouldn't have to go on record. And this is the kind of leadership you want on the city council?

10:17: The Star reported that Crispin Rea was one of the "yes" votes. Why are you spreading this bullshit?

Seems like a reasonable concern. Would McDonalds sell an old restaurant so they can open a Wendy's?

The only problem is that young people in the KCPS district are starving for a decent education, and most of them sure aren't getting it from the district. Which is why so many familiesa are moving or looking for charters or other opportunities.
But actually, the mention of McDonalds and Wendy's is pretty much on the mark.
That's where most of the KCPS board members should be working.
