SHAME!!! KANSAS CITY PUBLIC SCHOOLS STILL FALLING BEHIND IN TEST SCORES AND PROMISES OF FULL ACCREDITATION!!!
Despite presser hype from the KCPS . . . The latest MAP test scores reveal a dismal picture for Kansas City's district.
Worst still . . . Hickman Mills is continues its disastrous turn for the worse.
Here's the only important thing in the paper today: Low test scores show KC, Hickman Mills school districts falling far short of goals
A quick look at the numbers show that public education throughout Missouri is suffering but these two districts have consistently been left behind despite ongoing promises of improvement that have never taken hold for long.
The knee-jerk and racist reaction here is to blame demographics but the fact is that school districts surrounding Hickman are doing much better . . . With an always shrinking student population . . . KCPS also has little excuse for their continued FAIL. Instead . . . Look at the politics, leadership and constant administrative battling which surrounds these districts as a sign of larger systemic issues that impact an increasingly diverse student population.
