Recently, public radio asked why Kansas City mayoral contenders haven't said much about education given Mayor Sly's big promises on the topic throughout his political career.
Here's a clue that these newsies working on donated money can stick in their NPR tote bag . . .
MAYOR SLY COMPLETELY FAILED TO MAKE ANY SIGNIFICANT POSITIVE CHANGE TO THE KCPS DURING HIS TENURE!!!
Back in 2011 he proposed a KCPS takeover and was totally pushed back and embarrassed despite his popularity among local middle-class housewives with active imaginations.
And let's not he finished his lame duck term with a horrific defeat on a negligent plan to sell voters a Pre-K sales tax.
And now the never-ending education conversation turns to the new
Will Jolie Justus or Quinton Lucas attempt to fix the KCPS?
Paid consultants, teachers & administrators claim that progress is already underway. But academic testing remains pathetic, there's still a violence problem at many buildings and charter schools seem like the only hope.
Again, public radio offers more happy talk on this topic that continues to provide a longstanding lesson in FAIL . . .
