To transfer or not to transfer? That’s the question for Kansas City public school students who are in limbo as they wait for the outcome of a lawsuit to find out what their options are.
In the first part of Thursday's Up to Date, we look at how local superintendents are responding to a potential flood of inter-district student transfers and what solutions they’re proposing to help the ailing Kansas City, Mo., district. A bit later in the program, we examine what one local mom is doing to help other parents weigh their options with a new website.
- Robert Bartman is superintendent of the Center School District.
- Jamekia Kendrix is a parent advocate who lives in Kansas City, Mo.
- Tricia Johnson is the creator of the Show Me KC Schools website.
