Check The Latest KCPS Accreditation Promise

NBC Action News: "Superintendent of Kansas City Public Schools Dr. Stephen Green said he is confident test scores from the spring will put the district in position to end two years of being unaccredited.

Meanwhile, cheerleaders of the district might want to remember that going BACK to provisional accreditation is merely a tiny step forward after local leaders misplaced their faith in former Superintendent Covington who didn't do much besides close down a lot of schools and play perfectly to so much talk of "hope for change" amid a bit of national hysteria about changing times that really didn't change much.

Kansas City Big Picture: Shutting down a bunch of nearly abandoned schools which blighted nearby neighborhoods has been the only significant development within the KCPS for the past 10 years.

Public education is a failed experiment. Look at the cash we spend for zilch.

Public education, Common Core and all things to do with the Dept of Education are now just a political football game, played for big bucks that produces propaganda for the facist new demographic.

77,000 to 22,000 students create school closures. Accreditation is a different story.

I see it!
I see it!
The light at the end of the tunnel!
The Star could write an article, change a couple names and the date, and publish the same thing for decades.
Just give the keys to the place to the Urban Summit gang and Clinton Adams and let them continue to loot the place until there aren't any people or any money left.
It shouldn't take too long.
They've been practicing for years.

So here is how it works. The politicians contact the accreditation authority and make it real clear that the state has no clue how to fix anything and therefore make fucking sure the school system is fully certified. This is a "no brainer"....in Missouri
