TKC EXCLUSIVE!!! YET ANOTHER LEADERSHIP SWITCHEROO!!! HICKMAN MILLS SCHOOL BOARD HOT MESS PERSISTS!!!
Faster than local mainstream media can keep up with it . . . Special thanks to our blog community for EXCLUSIVE followup on the dismal education prospects in South Kansas City.

There are so many problems with public education in Hickman Mills that we're just going to have to do a quick summary . . .
