Students Talk About Life In KCMO Classrooms

Kansas City, Mo. – With the Kansas City Missouri school district considering closing half of its school buildings, and school board elections around the corner, many local public schools are at a crossroads.

As part of a special broadcast on the Future of Kansas City Schools, KCUR's Sylvia Maria Gross asked students from a variety of district and charter schools to weigh in with their stories of life in the classroom.

The students were from Westport High, Alta Vista Charter School, Banneker Elementary, the African Centered Education Collegium Campus, and Lincoln College Preparatory Academy.
