TKC BREAKING AND EXCLUSIVE NEWS!!! KANSAS CITY PUBLIC SCHOOLS WORST WEEK EVAR!!!! AFTERMATH: SOUTHWEST COULD SHUT DOWN AND SCHOOL BOARD MIGHT 'DESERVE' MISSOURI TAKEOVER!!!



These are desperate times for Kansas City Public Schools.

Let's not kid around . . .

AMID HORRIFIC SOUTHWEST CAMPUS RAPE CHARGES AND THE WESTPORT RE-VOTE REAL ESTATE HOT MESS . . . ONCE AGAIN THERE SEEMS TO BE VERY LITTLE CONFIDENCE IN KANSAS CITY PUBLIC SCHOOLS!!!

Here's the rundown . . .

Obviously, another rape report @ The Southwest Campus seems have shocked this city into action . . .

The Blaze: Six Employees Suspended Amid Horrific Rape Allegations at Missouri School

But let's not forget that Southwest has been in trouble since "right-sizing" that consolidated the KCPS and brought a new "element" to Southwest that simply destroyed the school. Arson threats, fighting and now rape are a result of a plan that has backfired.

And now . . .

TKC EXCLUSIVE: IN A CANDID DISCUSSION TO FIND A SOLUTION TO SEXUAL ASSAULT THAT ENDANGERS "SCHOLARS" . . . TALK OF SHUTTING DOWN THE SOUTHWEST CAMPUS IS NOW ON THE TABLE!!!

A few supporting arguments . . .



- The Top floor of Southwest is abandoned already . . . Experts say the building is simply TOO BIG to offer any kind of realistic expectation of safety for all students as recent events have proven.

- Think about this . . . Neighbors aren't jazzed about having teen arsonists, street fighters and sexual predators trekking trough their neighborhood . . . Now this talking point has more gravitas given recent tragic circumstances.

- So many well-documented safety concerns now put the district on the hook IF/WHEN, God forbid, more students are hurt. Liability could be the greatest motivator for real KCPS change.


And here's the really sad part . . . Rape of an autistic girl is just the beginning of KCPS problems . . .

THE WESTPORT NO-SALE VOTE HAS ENRAGED DENIZENS THROUGHOUT MIDTOWN KANSAS CITY!!!



Remember that earlier this week our TKC BLOG COMMUNITY brought word of this grassroots effort to encourage a re-vote on the sale of Westport High . . .

Now . . . An explanation of School Board voting on this topic simply defies logic according to even the most causal observer:

KC school board member says they were told charter was no longer interested in Westport High

DOING OUR VERY BEST MAURICE CHEVALIER IMPRESSION WE MUST SAY:



"AU CONTRAIRE MONSIEURS JACKSON ET AIRICK WEST!!!"


(TKC NOTE: That's funny for a lot of reasons that start with our second favorite Frenchman next to Sporting KC footballer Aurélien Collin and then of course the dead French language component in all of this . . . )

Fact Check: Academie Lafayette board President Dave Cozad said, “Yes, we’re still interested.”



Accordingly . . .

NOW THAT THERE IS AN EDUCATION COMPONENT OF THE WESTPORT SALE . . . WHAT WILL KCPS HONCHOS JOE JACKSON AND AIRICK L. WEST USE AS THEIR EXCUSE NEXT TIME AROUND?!?!

Of course . . . There's no comment on this . . .

Behind the scenes, Insiders claim that part of the real estate hot mess relates to School Board Member Joe Jackson's panicked reelection campaign and Airick West's constant "up-with-the-people" routine that can get frustrating after awhile.

Doesn't really matter . . . Clearly, the Westport decision has alienated voters and residents and holds very little upside.

One insider notes . . .

"It's a shame they have been wasting so much time with this when they should have been working to keep students save @ Southwest."

Furthermore . . . This observation is circulating far and wide:

"Recent events @ The KCPS maybe confirm that Missouri Education Commish Nicastro and so many others might be right . . . Maybe the Board isn't capable of governing our schools. Maybe the KCPS might deserve to have control taken away???"



Don't expect an answer on that one . . . But, in the final analysis, there's no doubt that constant talk of progress for Kansas City Public Schools is now more suspect than ever as safety and basic management skills of the school board and administrators face some VERY SERIOUS questions, challenges and decisions in the near future . . .

Haha. You could make one hell of an argument that Detroit has more civic pride than this dump.

I will admit that I have been frustrated/disappointed with the school board lately, and I have been a vocal supporter of then for at least the past five or six years.

The "no sale" of WHS concerns me that even if we find a developer for Thacher, the district will still deny our community our repeated and desperate requests. We have put a lot of hard volunteer work into this because we believe it is important to the future of Northeast AND Kansas City. A large part of me believes that most on the school board are determined to find a way to tear down Thacher without looking like the bad guys.

I hope a solution for WHS is found soon, I hope that SWHS can be better managed and secured, and I hope that we can Save Thacher.

When the president of the school board, doesn't even have a high school diploma, how can anyone have even a modicum of pride in the district??

Stop and think. For how many years has this kind of crap been going on with the Board and schools.

For the State Department of Education: Take over the KCPS
For parents who want their kids to have any kind of decent future: Move out of the district or send your kids to a charter.
KCPS has been little more that a trough of public money for fake contractors, consultants, and other grifters and an employment agency for utterly unqualified family and friends for decades.
And a little bit of paint and a smile don't change it one bit.

Bitches with autism are the best in bed. They want to please their men because they have low self worth but they want to be loved.

They will do anything nasty that you want them to do.

I fucked one when I was in HS. She let me fuck her in the ass. them cum all over her face.

Then she kept asking me if I loved her. I said no. So she got mad and started getting violent.

So when I did was smack her around a little, put her in my car and dumped her in some corn field in the middle on Franklin County, Ks.

I don't know what happened to her after that. Nor…do…I..care….

These days I don't know why anyone lies because with the Internet you're gonna get caught. The four yes votes need to give it to us straight. Why did they vote "no?"

And it appears Crispin Rea was not one of the "no" votes, so why is his stalker always posting lies?

"Follow the money" is usually good advice. Fess up, folks.

The ultimate failure of the KCSB, rest squarely with Airwick West. He's the dumb son-of-a-bitch that drove it off the bridge. Somehow, that bastard should be made to pay.....Somehow.

And over the barren, post-apocolyptic horizon walked one man, Airwick, the Manchild.

A hero for these times?

Poor Southwest.
Am a grad and feel it should be closed.
It's not the right school to be used as a teen daycare/prison.

It would be great if it could re-open as a private-get-a-real-education high school. It has a pool, gyms, 2,000 seat auditorium, a small auditorium, athletic fields, everything.

The dirty secret is that without central air, all the lead paint, and with all the asbestos inside the walls most of these old schools should just be knocked down.

I seriously question how safe it is to have children spending 8 hours a day surrounded by these known carcinogens.

Instead of trying to rehab 90 year old structures wouldn't it be cheaper to just bulldoze them and build a right-sized LEED energy efficient school in it's place?

Isn't Clyde McQueen the President of the KC Schools Buildings Organization? Why hasn't anyone asked him what is going on and what he thinks?

The fact is that in two generations, Southwest High School has gone from being a top quality high school, one of the best in the country that prepared its grads for the Ivy League and other top universities to being a cesspool of crime and ignorance. Is this progress when an educational institutional goes from producing first rate alumni such as Henry and Richard Bloch, Richard Smalley (1961 Nobel Prize winner), writers such as Evan S. Connell (Pulitzer Prize winner) and Calvin Trillin, director Robert Altman and Actor Chris Cooper to producing only one famous alumnus in twenty years and it is rapper Tech N9ne?

I mean no disrespect towards toward Mr. Yates by my comment and any school should be proud to have a successful artist like him for an alumnus; however this does show a cultural shift in the demographics of the area and of Kansas City in general. One cannot blame the current state of Southwest High School or the KCPS on racism, white privilege or white flight or any other Leftist buzz word. The fact is that sixty years of a welfare state has created a pathological society in the inner cities of America. Lyndon Johnson and the welfare state did not create a Great Society but sick society and these scholars we see at Southwest High School are products of this sick society and are Lyndon Johnson’s grandchildren. I have no solutions because I am nobody but I would say that this problem was not created overnight and it will not be solved overnight by throwing tax payer money or by personal attacks on people who oppose the status quo and at it will never be solved as long as the same corrupt politicians who profit from this status quo remain in office on all levels.

Head guy on the school board lacks a high school diploma?

You made that up, right?

I didnt know Tech N9ne went to that HS, and so did Henry Bloch.

Dead, dead, dead on the fuckin money.

I taught for a year one month at South West High School in 1977. The truth is, that it was a violent exercise in babysitting even back then. Just 10 years prior to that, it was the best school in the city.

Had a friend that went there in 77. Negro tried to conk him with a brick. Said negro soon regretted that in a big way...

I think the President should come and give a speech to these students and tell them to shape up.

They obviously have no respect for the mayor, west, and any other local leaders.

KC Star doesnt seem to want to discuss this story much. Was on their website and figured I would find some sort of op-ed about this is because of racism or not enough taxes.

I saw one article link on the side, but on the main page you come to its not even on there anymore. This is kind of a big deal.

Afrika Bambaata said...

The Star pretty much avoids any story involving Nig Niggery. Getting pretty tough to fill out a front page with local news because of that policy.

They need to bring prayer back to the schools. I know if I were a white kid at SW I would be praying there every day.

Anonymous said...

There are plenty of kids who are not white at SW who do not feel safe and who are praying.

I figured a friend wanted the building. Look at the maturity level of these clowns.

That school would make a nice little youth BOOT CAMP. Take any kid who qualifies for suspension, put him on probation, send him to BOOT CAMP for 12 weeks and watch the numbers change. Sooner or later there has got to be accountability that affixes direct responsibility to the bastard kid and corrects character issues before a child is 40 years old..

Another thing Airwick West needs, besides a high school diploma, is a fucking job. The black son-of-a-bitch doesn't even work!

Why is Crispin responding when Airick should be the one addressing this? Tony, I know you can find out which members, besides Jackson, voted no?

Airick West does have a job. He does computer IT work for a handful of clients. Not a 9-5, but he does manage some small

4:46 Mexicans, as far as I can tell are good for lawn mowing and roofing and loitering the Westport coffee shop. Other than that...nah, not good for SW High clean-up. Someone yesterday hit that one.....dozer from Foley Cat Dealer.

White folks now mad with Airwick West, after he was hand picked by the southwest corridor to that at-large seat.

I never understood, until now why wealthy whites could be so stupid.

Nothing. Both will soon lose their positions on the school board. Nothing else here. Move along.
