Kansas City Public Schools Mission: Possible



Kansas City Public School produces this promo video touting an upcoming honor and their ongoing mission to reach beyond their provisionally accredited status . . .

Dr. Green: Green-Garner Award nomination video

Take a look:



"John Hile, Board Chair of Kansas City Publlic Schools nominating Dr. R. Stephen Green, Superintendent of Schools, for the Council of Great City Schools’ Green-Garner Award."

Prizes are nice but the reality is that test scores from around the state are down and the KCPS small step forward is more about averting a transfer crisis rather than a reward for any significant academic improvement.

Shitweasels and their awards.

Awarding FAILURE and a corrupt system that bilks the taxpayers and pays ridiculous salaries to the scammers in charge.

When it comes to giving each other awards, KCPS still has a long way to go to catch up to the Chamber of Commerce swells, but they're making progress.

Why should test scores be up? KC school system is a complete failure and boards across the state witness the local school system getting and wasting more money than any system in the state. Why perform when under-performance is rewarded?

Performance:

2012 KCPS: MSIP 5 22 points
2013 KCPS: MSIP 5 84 points
2014 KCPS: MSIP 5 over 84 points

Final 2014 increase to be announced at the end of the month.

70 points is required for provisional accreditation. This is not a downward trend. Boards across the state are relieved that they don't have to deal with the KCPS transfer issue.
