TKC BREAKING AND EXCLUSIVE NEWS!!! KANSAS CITY KANGAROO SUMMER SCHOOL CONTROVERSY!!! COUNCIL DUDE JERMAINE REED CLASSMATE SHARES UMKC ATTENDANCE AND BIAS COMPLAINT!!!
It's Summer school time in Kansas City right now and our youngest Council dude seems to be having a bit of trouble on the road to higher education according to one AWESOME TKC TIPSTER.
To wit . . .
CHECK THIS TKC EXCLUSIVE TESTIMONY FROM A CLASSMATE OF COUNCIL DUDE JERMIANE REED EXPRESSING A BIT OF FRUSTRATION REGARDING UMKC GRAD SCHOOL ATTENDANCE, FAIRNESS AND BIAS CONCERN!!!
Now, we've confirmed that Councilman Reed is taking this class and we applaud his educational effort. Furthermore, we offered him a chance to comment and will post anything he would like to note on this topic.
While it has been a busy week in local politics, this is kind of a teaching moment for politicos venturing outside the City Hall corridors of local power . . .
Here's the 1st person testimony . . .
"Enrolled in a Masters of Public Administration summer course (Community Economic Development) at UMKC, with Jermaine Reed. The class is a 6 day course and today is day 3. The class is graded with 50% of the grade attributed to class participation. Jermaine has been absent for all but 4 hours.
"He was even an hour and half late two weeks ago due to the races! This was after [the instructor] warned the class to be prepared, and Jermaine emailed the class the course map! And yet somehow he got stuck behind the race lines and had to park his car on Troost and walk.
"The public should be aware of the fact that Jermaine does not deserve to receive credit for this course! If his absence from class continues, I plan to challenge the Bloch School for disregarding syllabus grading requirements and offering bias towards elected officials."
Thanks to this KICK-ASS TKC TIPSTER and all of the UMKC Kangaroos who are clearly learning to hold their politicos accountable . . .
