Here's quick advice for any poor soul with the misfortune to reside within the boundaries of Kansas City Public Schools . . .
If provisionally accredited schools ravaged by more than 40 years of political bickering isn't reason enough . . . We've got another warning . . .
KCPS NOW CONFRONTS A BITTERLY DIVIDED SCHOOL BOARD HOT MESS THAT WILL WREAK HAVOC ON AN ALREADY CRUMBLING INSTITUTION!!!
Look forward to a bitter blood feud betwixt charter vs. public schools and the fate of the Superintendent.
It gets worse.
In an otherwise pleasant report about the plans of a new faction, buried in the article is sketchy bit of question dodging from a newly elected politico who doesn't offer parents, students or administrators much hope of transparency. Check it:
Advocates for the district are worried about money that poured into the school board election from school choice proponents — BLAQUE gets funding from SchoolSmart KC, which in turn gets money from the Kauffman and Hall foundations.
Newly elected school board member Tanesha Ford said she wouldn’t speculate on the money trail.
“Any conversations about funding from BLAQUE need to be directed to the leaders of that organization because I don’t have any certainty about where they get their funding,” Ford said.
For these reasons and so many more, we're advising against ANYONE putting much faith in this school system that is now, once again, headed for total collapse.
