School's Out Forever

So the KCMO School District booted their latest Superintendent.

Boy, no one saw that coming!

Actually, I'm not all that shocked. The KCMOSD is what we medical professionals like to call a train wreck. There's so many things wrong with it, you just don't know where to start to fix it.

I've always been suspicious of the KCMO school board itself. How many of the board members actually have kids who are in the system? Back in the day of growing up in smaller towns, the people who sat on the board were parents. If someone sat on the board didn't have kids, people just looked at them like "What the hell are you doing here??"

Maybe the state should step in and take over the district, just like they did in St. Louis. It would render the school board impotent (heh!) and maybe something would actually get accomplished, like oh, I don't know, the schools getting their accreditation back.
