Rightsizing a School District
Esselman, Mary; Lee-Gwin, Rebecca; Rounds, Michael
Phi Delta Kappan, v93 n6 p56-61 Mar 2012
The transformation of the Kansas City, Missouri Public Schools (KCMSD) has been long overdue. Multiple superintendents and administrations, using billions of dollars of desegregation funds ventured to transform the district by creating magnet schools, themed schools, and career-focused high schools. Missing from these initiatives, but included in the current restructuring, was a laser-like focus on teaching and learning. (Contains 4 figures.)
