MUST SEE!!! MAYOR SLY CAN'T SAVE KANSAS CITY PUBLIC SCHOOLS SO IS HE SELLING THEM OUT FOR THE TOY TRAIN?!?
Not so long ago when Mayor Sly wanted to take over Kansas City Public Schools but that didn't really work out and he moved far away from the KCPS disaster zone.
Now . . . Toy Train streetcar haters are calling the Mayor out on his current stance that kinda turns his back on local "scholars" in hope of attracting a better and smarter class of people . . .
Has the Mayor Sold Out Education For the Streetcar?
Main point . . .
On April 29, 2014 Mayor Sly James spoke at a symposium on the streetcar hosted by the UMKC Law School. The mayor had some interesting comments regarding the students in the Kansas City public school system.
He stated “as a result of less than world class education for decades in the City we do not have the internal inventory of young whiz kids…so that we have to import”. So instead of fixing the school system he is going with the adage “If we build the streetcar they will come.”
The mayor’s comments imply that he is turning his back on the current and future students in the Kansas City school system while “importing” new talent. Apparently he feels that the students in the private schools are not making the grade either. Aside from the fact that his comments are insulting and condescending, they also display a serious gap in leadership.
Again, this is all based on the principal that the plan Mayor Sly and Council dude Russ Johnson developed will work . . . If it doesn't, I guess this down is stuck with a bunch of dumb people AND the train they purchased.
