TKC EXCLUSIVE!!! SOUTH KANSAS CITY HICKMAN MILLS SCHOOL CRISIS CONT'D!!!



It's no secret that Hickman Mills is now Kansas City's most embattled metro school district.

One very knowledgeable insider informed us:

"It's a career death sentence. Any administrator or even Board member knows that they run the risk of ruining their professional reputation by being involved with the Hickman Mills School district. It's the new KCPS."

What's surprising is how much is going unreported . . . For instance, local media has been strangely quiet about the Karry Palmer resignation . . .



We won't engage in reporting of stuff we can't independently confirm but, fact is, there is more to this story that we know all about and we've been talking to our mainstream media friends regarding how this news item will develop but for now the unreported resignation is important . . . Our blog community is FIRST to report the development for so-called "personal reasons" as Parent/Teacher questions to the School District are being strangely redirected . . .



The current Hickman Mills School District Crisis is marked by Board Of Ed. fighting and the controversial departure of the Superintendent that was denounced across the metro given the exorbitant salary . . .

Now public radio is attempting to do a bit of followup reporting on this ongoing education tragedy . . .

Meanwhile, what we're seeing is the fight for political power taking a tragic toll on the quality of education in this district.

Better title: Hickman Mills hell hole.

When John Sharp was on the school board, the school district and kids were not important. It was all about politics.

In 1976 Hickman Hills HS was the gem of KCMO area. 40 years of liberal, democrat control and it's a fucking war zone.

That is the John Sharp era of Hickman Mills. John Sharp also destroyed MAST.

Amen! Amen! John Sharp got on the school board to enhance his name recognition so he could run for city council AGAIN. He totally politicized the board and it hasn't been the same since.

It would help if there were any kind of media coverage. The community has no idea what's going on.

The media doesn't dare, they know who butters the bread! Fucking spineless punk fucks! They are directly responsible for what shit pile mess we are in now.
At least most ditch diggers have integrity. (I have dug a ditch in my day)

Wait, something else got ruined that used to be nice? What is it that changed over the years? What could it possibly be? I bet there's less white people and more black people there now right? Yep, that will ruin everything every time.

Carpenter fixed everything - just ask him. His pet projects at Burke, Santa Fe, Hickman Mills and all new Administrative offices will fix it. WHAT A WASTE!
The Board needs to find someone from outside the district - or maybe it's time for the State of MO to take over

If only a current TV news personality would leave and become a spokesperson for HMSD.

I hear the Board is once again failing to do its job. They've decided to replace Carpenter with someone from within the District. Most of those who may be "qualified" are people Carpenter brought on board - some from Georgia. Having one of his "yes people" take over and continue with Carpenter's failures isn't going to help. A experienced (Carpenter had none) leader (Carpenter has been a bully) committed (Carpenter couldn't get his kid out of the district and himself fast enough) knowledgeable (Carpenter can talk but that doesn't mean you know anything) person to be Superintendent is needed.
Board - your single biggest job is to find a highly qualified, experienced person to lead. This person must promote teamwork and respect those who have worked in the district for years - most often they have a better understanding of the students and families than the superintendent does. STOP wasting money on high profile projects that will do NOTHING to address the needs of the students and families. SCRAP the projects at Burke (Baptiste) and Santa Fe, put the effort in ALL the elementary schools and try to identify the true needs - English learners, transient, poverty. AND why waste millions on new administrative offices.
Yes, where is the media? Why did the Star endorse the foolish bond issue? Why isn't there more investigative reporting related to waste and incompetence of the superintendent and the board?
AND does anyone from Lee's Summit read the legitimate comments on Tony's or do they simply think everyone who has a concern is the hate baiting racist who so often post here? Many folks in HM mills have lived here for years, own homes with declining market value, and have real concerns. The community needs a legitimate forum for public discussion (Tony's isn't it), not another puppet group of John Sharp's like South Kansas City Alliance.
People are actively protesting the current Washington DC incompetence, something miles away, but they aren't protesting the incompetence, waste, and stupidity in their own backyard. The Board meetings need to be flooded with protests every time they meet to demand a CHANGE.

Lee's Summit residents - get out your checkbooks, Carpenter is coming. You thought it was climate change - it's really just his hot air.
BTW HM Board use this as a chance to make a difference and do something worth while. Find someone qualified with a proven track record, not just a record of scams and hot air.

The schools are making racism their top priority. Everything is about it meetings, conversations even curriculum. Sad really so many good things out there but this district blames everything on inequality. They are the raciest ones
