TKC MUST READ!!! KCPS SUPERINTENDENT STANDS UP FOR DREAMERS!!!



A recent forthright KCPS statement on the topic of illegal immigration from a few days back remains relevant for many reasons . . .

- Latinos, many undocumented, remain the largest and fastest growing minority group in the KCPS.

- While Prez Trump flip-flops on DACA, these words are direct and to the point . . .

- Like it or not, Kansas City, MO is a de facto sanctuary city and this represents a great deal of local institutional thinking.

Here's the word that was downplayed in the mainstream news despite a great deal of social media support . . .

Dr. Mark T. Bedell, Superintendent of KC Public Schools: It was announced recently that President Donald Trump has started a six-month process of dismantling the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. New DACA registrations have been suspended and the President has called on Congress to address the issue. This decision makes me angry, sad and determined. Regardless of federal actions, I want you to know that Kansas City Public Schools is and will remain a nurturing environment for all students and their families to the greatest extent possible . . .

"Let me make this clear: I will oppose anything that makes it more difficult for our children to succeed. DACA is a fundamentally humane program. It has opened new opportunities for our children as they pursue their college and career goals. I have had too many personal interactions with these young people to simply stand by while this nation pulls the rug out from underneath them. I have seen how much it means to them that they can pursue their dreams. I will steadfastly defend all our children, including these "Dreamers." They and their families have made our home their home. I recognize their fear and am determined to provide them with tangible solace and support. We must stand together."

You decide . . .

Trump did not flip flip, the Democrats lied about their "deal" fact. The president's supporters are keeping him honest. No hope of that for Pelosi, Schumer and the rest.

Trump will say anything to anyone, it just depends on what it will get him. He's got no principles and no real agenda other than his own.

One word for DACA and its supporters ... Adios!

Rather than worry about that, please spend your time fixing the local schools. That's what you are paid for.

"Let me make this clear: I will oppose anything that makes it more difficult for our children to succeed." Then leave, you and the school board are the reason the school district has failed. If it's in the best interest of the children then there needs to be real professionals running the district not a bunch of pretend wanna be's sucking up large paychecks.

Nothing terrifies me more then some Anonymous douchebag on a fucking joke blog telling me that I've got a real problem. Mister I took that one the heart and now I'll probably have to go take a nap now at least try to sleep and calm the nerves.

DACA is a fundamentally unconstitutional program. Trump was exactly right to acknowledge that the Chief Executive has no authority to in effect nullify a valid law by refusing to enforce it, and to give Congress a chance to amend that law before he resumes enforcement.

This superintendant conveniently ignores the fact that his resources are limited. The money he spends educating the illegal population will not be available to spend educating children of American citizens and legal immigrants. But it's easier and a lot more fun to posture than to think.

8:06 Is right. Give us all a break with the "Virtue Signalling" bullshit pal. You are in charge of a organization that has a well defined and public record of categorical failure. It would seem to me that your efforts, all of your efforts, should be directed towards reviving the corpse that has been, is now and probably will be for the foreseeable future, the KCSD.

No doubt, your declaration has precipitated the predictable head nodding and back slapping all of you Progressive types live for in the empty echo chamber within in and without of your skulls, but, as usual, nothing gets done and like the exhausted fumes of an extinct volcano, your oh so profound proclamations disappear into the ether, that, not so strangely smells of cordite and bullshit.

Huh...

Why don't you have your eggs, go try to pinch off a BM, I know it's hard for you. Then have some you in and yes I know most assuredly not a family member but have your nerve stuck in tomato soup and crackers and maybe later on tonight if you're a real good old codger and you don't get mad and smear feces all over the wall your caretaker will log in to Stormfront for a half hour or so. Don't forget to take your 15 different meds that you get from the government and sweet dreams for now, you crotchety old bastard... night night now

The Doc will say anything to keep the $225 grand a year rolling in. Plus a district automobile, health and dental insurance, moving expenses, a retirement plan contribution and a retention bonus at the end of the three years.

ST. LOUIS • About 1,000 protesters surrounded the home of St. Louis Mayor Lyda Krewson in the Central West End late Friday, breaking at least two windows and throwing red paint at the brick house before some 200 police in riot gear moved in to break it up.

Geezer Hater 9:11 is expanding his vocabulary - he said "old codgers" and "crotchety old bastard". Must've paid attention in yesterday's Sophomore Literature class.

The only reason he's fighting for the latinos is money, period. The more kids in school the more money the Feds give them.

Dear Dr. Bedell,

Would you feel the same way if a group of well-meaning people came onto your property, into your house/garage, and began squatting there without your permission? If a bureaucrat chose your house to become a sanctuary property, you'd be fine with that?

The fundamental question surrounding this issue is whether the United States has an existing legal system which will be honored, respected, and observed.

Dr. Bedell, would you please disclose the fact that you stand to personally benefit by encouraging illegal immigration into this country, and specifically the enrollment of illegal immigrant youth into the KCPS system?

According to your stance on this issue, I suppose it would be acceptable for KCMO to welcome and protect millions of indigent illegal immigrants from China/India/and the African continent, as long as they can find a way to sneak into the U.S.?

Dr. Bedell, you're not being honest, and you're not thinking correctly.

Bend over Cuck,here comes some SJW dreamer cream.

Having dreams is how everyone takes a few minutes from the madness and enjoys that which they don't have. Problems occur when you lose the ability to separate your dreams from reality. Sure dreams are possible but most dreams take a lot of hard honest work to see them happen.

Sadly today to many stand around holding a hand out wanting someone else to hand them their dreams at no cost or effort from them.

So, Dr. Bedell, is it OK if families from Johnson County start sending THEIR kids to your schools? Sneaking across State Line, and just sending them thru the front doors?

Oh wait. That will never happen. Your district is a broken mess. No matter how much of a subsidy you glom onto.

I think you need to concentrate on the LEGAL residents. Fix that. Just fix that. You are not paid to be be a Congressman. Rev. Cleaver holds that vote. Just.Do.Your.Job...full time. Superintendent is not boot camp for running for office. There's a reason the school board gave you a big carrot to play for--staying in the job for three years. The only thing the board could agree on! Playing the numbers.

What's the average? Two years? There was a period in the 70's to early 80's when KCSD had 13 superintendents in 13 years.

Just.Do.Your.Job.

Where do former school superintendents go, anyway?? It's like the mismatched socks lost somehow in the dryer. Is there a mountain in Nevada somewhere? Wave to the drone!!!

Bedell was assistant superintendent for high schools at Baltimore and now that everything is falling apart there looks like his exit strategy for when the columns started crumbling worked out pretty well.

They are here illegally. Obama broke the law letting them stay. Trump is doing the right thing. Let Congress decide, if they can. They can't decide on shit. So Trump will make the ultimate decision. Send them back.
