Missouri's Schools Suffer under Blunt and Nolte


Parents of Missouri school kids have known it for a long time, but now even President Bush recognizes that Missouri's schools have been back sliding under the Blunt Administration.

All the papers in the State have reported that Bush's Department of Education determined that "Missouri has demanded too little of its schools and reprimanded their shortcomings too slowly." Zollie Stevenson, chief of federal Student Achievement and School Accountability Programs, and leader of the team that reviewed Missouri says "The state needs to be more proactive — actually going out and monitoring." The KC Star reports Missouri could lose major school funding dollars.

Not only are our schools not performing, but they underfunded. Missouri legislators, like Rep. Jerry Nolte (R) in Gladstone, did not attempt to 1) increase funding or 2) make a more equitable funding formula. Half the school districts have sued the state for underfunding. Regardless of the outcome of the suit, its a bad thing for half the school districts to know they are underfunded. What does Nolte due to improve our schools? He co-sponsored a HJR1 that would strip Courts of the power to determine under the Missouri Constitution if schools are adequately funded. Nolte sure doesn't want anyone telling him to take care of Gladstone school kids.

So Bush's Department of Education gives our schools a F, half the school districts have to sue the state because they are underfunded and Nolte's solution is to beat up on the Courts. Maybe the solution is to get rid of Representative Nolte and Gov. Matt Blunt. The solution is to elect Terry Stone and Jay Nixon.

What is the North Kansas City School district's take on school funding?

Didn't the NKC district pass a resolution against vouchers, that Nolte voted for?

That must have been the same voucher bill Ridgeway sponsored after taking $40 g in donations.

I knew the 2moons dil so I always try my best to earn them more and more to make myself strong. I have never played the game before, at the beginning I did not know what is so I went to kill the monsters with the 2moons gold that I earned with myself in the game. I will duty bound to a friend to help brush the 2moon dil together with my friends. I spend a good relationship is then fly to tears. If my levels are very high, I can go to buy 2moons dil more and more and I will not depend on my friends to help me to earn them. I get some cheap 2moons gold as the gifts to encourage me.
