Equal Treatment to Equals: A New structure for Public Schools in the Kansas City and St. Louis Metropolitan Areas.
Hooker, Clifford P.; Mueller, Van D.
This study of school districts in the Kansas City and St. Louis metropolitan areas is part of a larger study entitled, "School District Organization for Missouri" (ED 026 171). After a discussion of political, social, and economic factors affecting schools in most metropolitan areas, the paper focuses on Kansas City and St. Louis, where gross inequalities of educational opportunity are seen to exist. A new structure for public education in Missouri is then described as a regional school district with limited powers for each of the Kansas City and St. Louis metropolitan areas.
