JimmyCSays: Abject failure at a school (Southwest) and at the superintendent’s level (yes, you, Steve Green), and what needs to happen next
Money line . . .
"It’s a sorry commentary on the district and on (Superintendent) Green as the top administrator that at least one Kansas City public school — and probably a few more — still feel unsafe when you walk through the doors.
It will be up to the next school board to demand that Green insure that every school has an environment where parents don’t have to worry about their children becoming crime victims while in their school buildings."
Again, this is a MUST READ post and we can only add that it's not only visiting Southwest that might elicit fear but also living in the vicinity of the troubled school causes nearby neighborhoods to feel unsafe.
