This is very sad. We are raising kids, who can not think, or created. A culture of darkness.

Hey Sue!
I live about 60/70 miles north of KC, and have heard so much about these schools.
They are indeed going to close, I think over 20 schools. Many of these schools are magnet schools, and there are some in bad parts of town as well.
While its sad these are being closed and mainly I believe due to poor managment, the suburbs of KC continue to grow. My hubby has helped build 2 or 3 new schools and has helped update and remodel several just in the past few years.
They finally have a superintendent that is trying to budget and work with in a budget.Maybe he can get the city's school district back into some kind of order.
On a sort of positive note~
the homeless teen in the area may have new housing in one of the old school buildings( apparently the homeless rate among KC teens has been growing by leaps and bounds.) Maybe with a new place to live, they can settle back into school and could actually help biuld the district back up!

hugs~

Every parent should be their child's first teacher, sadly, that is no longer the case...the family is the front-runner of what a society becomes...
Bless you and every other who makes it their life-long career..xo

Kristine exactly but sadly a lot of parents won't do anything and then expect us to do it all for them....
