The Kansas City Public Schools (KCPS) ends the 2014–2015 school year with several challenges to resolve and decisions to make. It is time to provide our students a really outstanding education that will equip them for the future.

It makes me sad that nothing seems to improve for Kansas City public schools, except the development of of a few successful charters. Some of the candidates running for school board may be spending a lot of energy arguing for a public school system that doesn’t seem interested in implementing radical changes.

After two years (this year’s data are not in) evaluators and the state are encouraged by the progress of the Lawrence district. Graduation rates are up and dropouts are down; test scores in math and language are up.
Everyone agrees that there is plenty more work to do, but there is a clear direction.
We challenge the citizens of Kansas City not to ignore the students of Kansas City Public Schools and to insist that every child in every classroom receives an education that will equip them with skills needed for post high school training, college and careers.
