Kansas City Clause Key To Killing Controversial Missouri Transfer Law Bill

Missourinet: Opponents of the (Missouri Transfer Law) bill would be better served by Article X, Section 11(g), which deals with the operating levy for the Kansas City School District.

“This says that in Kansas City the operating levy is for schools of the district, so I think right there you have a problem,” says University of Missouri School of Law, Prof. Brad Desnoyer, “because you can’t be sending money in Kansas City to private schools.”

The failure of some of these districts goes on and on and yet the incompetent boards insist that their failure continue to be funded by the taxpayers, even though the kids continue to get poor educations.
So they fight to keep their money even when kids bail out and transfet to another district.
And in St. Louis, the failed district is now suing the state because the Department of Education has finally had enough and dissolved the board.
In KCMO the school district has been little more than a trough for fake contractors and other grifters and an employment agency for unqualified family and friends. It's had little to do with educating young people.
The failure is with the people elected by a handful of voters and most of who couldn't run a one-car garage and with the community it serves who is more interested in getting its hand in the pie than in educating it own neighborhood kids.
Generation after generation lost.
Look in the mirror.
