Kansas City hates Sly, not Pre-K.

Kcps has 18 pre-k programs already so this is an obvious money grab that inner city people will vote for and think will benefit them when it actually only benefits city hall with extra money. Millennials are stupid and will think this is the gubmint paying for their children’s school and will vote yes, no dummies, you’re still paying.

In a 2-7-19 post on TKC Dr. Gayden Carruth exposed the lie in Slie's pre-K proposal.
“According to the mayor’s plan, only 25 to 30 percent of the approximately $30 million in sales-tax revenue will be spent for direct services to children during the first three years.” This would leave Slie a $21 to $22.5 million slush fund which Slie has conveniently avoided stating what his slush fund will be used for. You can bet that after 3 years the direct services will be much less. The schools should definitely not support this money grabbing scheme.

The taxpayers should be behind the schools and not support this worthless tax.

^^^Pre-K gains do not last beyond the second grade. It is not worth the expense and effort to set up and maintain the program.
