FACT CHECK: KCPS STAYS LOSING AMID NEW MAP TEST SCORES!!!



The lesson here is that after all the political maneuvers and real estate games, it's still hard to create a better learning environment within classrooms.

Moreover . . .

KANSAS CITY PUBLIC SCHOOLS STILL RANKS NEAR THE BOTTOM OF METRO DISTRICTS AND PROGRESS IS SLOW AND STEADY BUT DOESN'T MATCH MEDIA HYPE!!!

This is the most important takeaway:

"KCPS scored more than six points higher than last year, placing them just below the percentage needed to qualify for accreditation."

Deets:

"Kansas City Public Schools, granted provisional accreditation last month, fared lower than the majority of Kansas City’s larger school districts.

"The lowest ranking schools in the district include Central Academy of Excellence with below average MAP scores and Northeast High School, which fared lowest in scores among children who speak English as a second language.

"However, a few schools within the district scored above average. Lincoln College Prep and Wendell Phillips Elementary earned perfect scores."

Roundup of most of the important MAP news:

KSHB: Missouri school test performance scores released

Newspaper: Report cards hold mixed bag for Kansas City area districts

KMBZ: One in four students needs help with speaking English and more than 90% receive free or reduced lunches.

If there is not going to be accountability why should the schools get their scores up or start teaching these students anything? You are either accredited or you are not. Imagine lawyers, doctors, even drivers failing their tests and being given a ticket to practices while getting up to par? This is nothing but dereliction by the State and an open public admission that if you fail to do your duty you will be rewarded anyway. This is what happens when a bunch of libtards are running things.

LOL.....nobody surprised by this.

A better test would be the same test given in any mid-town/crossroads coffee shop.

The answers would be even worse !

Start holding the students to national educational standards and start flunking those who do not meet the standards. There is grade padding and pandering to parents who think their "little child doesn't deserve no "D" or "F"!" But then the whole charade would come crumbling down . . .

Maybe after all of the funding and improved curriculum we need to just accept this simple fact: KCPS scholars are not smart.

I'd like to know how many of the teachers can pass the MAP test. I remember the early days of school desegregation and there were some amazingly stupid teachers transferred to white schools.
