Now the next step is to completely dismantle the KCMSD. Fire them ALL and have DESE take over - who uses real standards with real accountability.

And all the surrounding suburbs heaved a huge sigh of relief.

Apparently, 7:25, you don't understand that this veto means that KCMSD folks can now transfer out of the District under the law that was upheld by the Supreme Court last year. So, hold your breath.

Are you sure, 7:34?

Everyone in the KCMO school district is too stupid or lazy or complacent to transfer, so no worries on the receiving suburban district. Nothing to receive.

I know people that work in KCPS and they say it is horrible. The superintendents have NO IDEA what they are doing. Supposedly there is some guy named Davis who thinks he knows everything and just moves up the ranks. I also hear all of the secretaries had to change student attendance downtown so they could make it look like student attendance is good. Isn't that cheating?
