Creating Kansas City College Graduates



Here's a great mini-doc emphasizing the importance of students working to take on tens of thousands of dollars worth of debt in their early 20s in order to surround themselves with much more wealthy fellow students who didn't have to eat Ramen for 5 years in order to get a job at a box store.

Celebrate this local good deed along with the theater of the Presidency and Trump's recent job save . . .

"The Ewing Marion Kauffman School was founded in 2011 with a goal of creating college graduates. Hannah Lofthus, founder and CEO, emphasizes that the success of students is a city-wide opportunity. Current eighth graders score 80 percent proficient in communication arts, 81 percent proficient in math and 76 percent proficient in science. The Kansas City, Kansas Public Schools score 25 percent, 5 percent and 14 percent, respectively."

You decide . . .

Mr. Kauffman's company was hijacked and taken over by the lunatic corporate class who feels everything in sight is now Mr. Kauffmans backyard.

I watched the first half of the video. Reminded me of an Obama speech. Filled with uplifting and encouraging goals, but no specifics about how to get there.

Look at their model 1018a. The answers are there. Cast a net for a bunch of fish, find the good ones & throw back the rest.
