Edgerton is the hottest smallest town in KS or MO right now. While the businesses and industrial side of it has changed the town and it's residents stay the same.

Gardner-Edgergon is a very good school district, and the reasons are simple. There's good community support, decent families, great staff, and very importantly--diversity is of the correct count and caliber. Those two parent homes are largely entrepreneurs, educated professionals, and tradespersons who are not permissive of ghetto garbage/white trash behaviors.

Quick cue the social justice warriors to get some section 8 housing out there to diversify the area for it's own good.

The residents of Edgerton should be glad there are not any meat packing plants there. You should see what they have done to towns in south and western KS.

There goes the city. All the beaners are going to snap up all the low income housing. They will move all there families to be close to work.
Olathe should be glad . All that trash is leaving that city. You know how it works. Ten families will move in a 2 bedroom home. The men will
be at the bars picking up all the trashy women while there women are home taking care of all their future welfare recipients.Good luck
