TKC EXCLUSIVE!!! KANSAS CITY PUBLIC SCHOOLS REJECT MAYOR SLY'S PRE-K BECAUSE THEY WANT HALF A BILLION BUCKS TO REPAIR BUILDINGS NEXT YEAR!!!
There's a reasonable debate that we can have about standard early education vs. Pre-K QUESTION 1 touted for the upcoming April 2nd ballot. But students of local politics know that the argument, like all worthwhile disagreements, is really just about money.
Accordingly . . .
A BIG PART OF KCPS OPPOSITION AGAINST PRE-K SALES TAXES IS BECAUSE THEY'RE PLANNING A MEGA BOND DEMAND FOR 2020!!!
And so, the surprising level of unity against Question 1 isn't just about pushing back against higher taxes . . . It's a sign that these advocates have bigger fish to fry.
A friend of the blog sent us a snippet from a school board candidate who shared this nearly EPIC insight that offers a glimpse at the future for tax-weary residents . . .
"Dr. Bedell has let it slip that next year he is going to ask for a $500,000,000 bond issue to repair KCPS buildings before they fall down."
And so . . .
FEAR THIS TKC FIRST LOOK AT THE EPIC KCPS RANSOM IN THE MAKING!!!
Whilst KCMO residents want better schools, a half-a-billion dollars is a lot to ask but offers a glimpse at the stakes of the local education game. Mayor Sly's effort is chump change given this scale but local education officials aren't letting anything stand in the way of their historic tax push underway behind the scenes and now front and center for our blog community to consider.
