KCMO School District And Teachers' Union Near Contract Agreement
Kansas City, MO – Teachers in the Kansas City Missouri school district have been working without a contract since last summer. The teacher's union and the district say they're finally closing in on an agreement, but they've had to re-negotiate the entire document from scratch. District officials hope the new agreement will make both teachers and administrators more accountable for student performance. KCUR's Sylvia Maria Gross reports.
