MORE2 Forum on Education
No doubt, the eduction system in KC is not what we would want. We have a vote tomorrow for Independence to take some of the KC MO school district. No Child Left Behind has been a failure (i.e. if Lee's Summit and Blue Springs School Districts get bad report cards, something ain't right). Mayor Funk has yet to have his big meeting on education.
At least one group is willing to tackle this issue head on. MORE2 (Metro Organization of Racial and Economic Equity) is hosting a forum "Healing our Hurting Public Education System." It is at 7:00 on November 8th at Zion Grove Missionary Baptist Church (2801 Swope Parkway). MORE2 is compromised of several different faith based groups - Jewish, protestant, Catholic, White, Black.
If you care about public education in KC MO, this would be a great place to learn more.
