Monday Teachable Moment: Here's How Kansas City Public Schools FAIL NextGen



Right now we wanna share a REMARKABLE DOCUMENTARY ABOUT PUBLIC EDUCATION IN KANSAS CITY THAT HAS BEEN MOSTLY IGNORED . . . Remember that that the public school debate is coming soon to the ballot box as Mayor Sly champions a pricey Pre-K sales tax that schools, community and activists have rejected.

Here's the big picture . . .

"There is a racial and wealth divide in the Kansas City metro, so in the future, how do we ensure no kids are left behind? Area schools and organizations are putting their heads together to try and improve the bleak conditions many students are in."

Take a look:



And whilst we recognize the great information, artistry and insight of this KCPT movie . . . Let's not forget that these cinematic polemics haven't displayed much influence over the local discourse or voters. Moreover, the issues of KCPS FAIL isn't so complicated as most parents have simply decided TO MOVE OUT of this embattled public school district or choose better Charter school options.

You decide . . .

Kcps has sucked for decades, they can’t teach these kids nothing, they won’t learn, besides, it’s all about the money they get from the feds, the more kids they graduate the more money they get, nobody said they had to learn anything.

They need to shut it down and start all over.

Kansas City police made just 195 arrests in 4,647 burglaries reported in 2017. said...

Well is our children learning?

You could start by addressing vacant parenting by Escalade buying breed sows, the thug rape/murder culture, fatherless upbringing, et cetera.

But you won't, because that be rayciss n shee.

They know the problem they just don't want to address it. That would be liberal incorrectness.

The District needs to scale back in size and concentrate on only a few schools. Only 13,000 kids come to school regularly. The rest just come to skip school within the school.

First step to help a child grow up to be productive is do not give them some gibberish name.

They need to focus more on what's interesting to the kids. B & E, Elementary Robbery, Advanced Assault, Advanced Armed Criminal Acton, Comprehensive Carjacking, Elementary Eluding, Advanced Firearms (includes range time), Ebonics, Basic Hair Braiding,

Give me time I'm sure I missed a few. Please feel free to contribute.

Ya got any better ideas?! said...

Just go all in and make those current KCPS sitting services into decent boarding schools. That way, babymamas are freed up for second jobs to help pay for this #8 ranked debt-loaded city. Still, the kiddies will be in secured buildings, provided transportation, all meals, laundry services, plus someone else to read bed-time, uh, well....what?!

The economic divide is rich vs poor, it doesn’t matter what color you are, you either have it or you don’t. Why is he making everything into a black vs white thing? Nothing like dividing people there Lucas, at least we now know who you’ll be taking care of..... and it won’t be whitey.
