Congratulations to the NKC School District!

Just think, since it has a much larger budget and much smaller student enrollment, the KCMO School District would have the money to do this sort of thing or even a more elaborate and effective Pre-K Program if they could only spend less on "Administrative Costs"!

Shame they've re-purposed themselves as a "Jobs Program for the politically-connected" instead of remaining an organization dedicated to Education.
