The fact is that the KCMO teachers don't want to work in school or not. Local control is working great there isn't it?

Whatever they do, the students will continue to be illiterate.

Can you image the typical kcmo student, given a laptop, notebook, and free internet, actually logging on, attending an online class, and actually learning anything.

How much money has been and will be wasted trying to teach....that are unable to learn beyond a third grade level.

Kansas City Schools Gail, period. They keep the good schools in business and property values of KC residents down. I’ve lived here 35 years and they are as bad as they were when I first moved here. School vouchers would put them, completely out of
business, them school administrators could finally work where they should...McDonalds, Missy B’s, you name it, although most would never pass a
basic literacy test.
