TEACHING MOMENT!!! HICKMAN MILLS SCHOOL BOARD PREZ RESIGNS AFTER TKC BLOG COMMUNITY COVERAGE!!!



Remember that early in the week our blog community reported a rigged election ploy in Hickman Mills that was corrected by way of a valiant court battle.

And now . . .

AFTER THE TKC BLOG COMMUNITY FIRST REPORTED THIS EPIC COURT DECISION . . . THE SCHOOL BOARD HONCHO STEPS DOWN!!!

Here's the word . . .

"School board president Shawn C. Kirkwood resigned from the Hickman Mills School District board and Evelyn Hildebrand will be sworn in . . ."

Credit where it's due . . . A broad coalition of South Kansas City residents stood up to this challenge to local Democracy and the ensuing conversation about this effort includes a great deal of talk from our blog community about the impact of Cerner and new jobs on this school board drama that is, just now, starting to get sorted out thanks to the efforts of KICK-ASS TKC TIPSTERS.

Developing . . .

Did Kirkwood resign or loose an election? But watch out - Hickman Mills has one open seat, the board may just reappoint him.
Let's hope Hildebrand is the first step toward a better board and a better district (no pressure) and will stand up to the superintendent where the others won't.

It's never about the kids. It's always about administration and school district 'leaders.'
No actual good schools in this entire area (Kansas City) since the late 60's.

Since then, there've been million$ paid out to useless, pathetic users that never gave a fuck about a child's education.

Gotta love progress like this.

Congrats South Kansas City. You have elected yourselves a freedom Inc school board. Ask KCMO how that turned out.

Is the golden parachute for these "pathetic users" in place? Are we crazy to allow this pay for nothing scheme so these "pathetic users" can ride off into the sunset with our cash? I'm voting no on every school bond issue until this scam ends.

Remember these stats when you go to vote for scam artists to pocket our hard earned funds: Teacher pay $50,596

Pathetic users

usd 229 superintendent $634,454
usd 512 asst. super $422,198

TKC united to pay teachers, not overpaid users

We have had a John Sharp school board which is worse than Freedom Inc.

Loser Kirkwood needs to pay the taxpayers back. I can't believe my money was used to defend something so obviously wrong.

Pretty sure the district is going to be in trouble until it gets rid of the superintendent. After destroying one of the most sound, research based early childhood programs anywhere in Missouri and replacing it with a rushed to start all day program which does more harm than good he had the audacity to ask for permission not to live in/send his own kids to the program.... then lectured teachers at the start of the year for not choosing to live in the school district! Double standards, race baiting, and excuses that place the blame everywhere but where it belongs are why this district will not be improving any time soon.
