20 Pounds Of Headlines

The Missouri Senate Education Committee gave unanimous approved to a bill that could speed up the state take-over the unaccredited Kansas City, Missouri School system.
The bill moves to the full Senate. A similar bill passed both Houses of the legislature last year. It was caught up in the last-minute flurry at the State Capitol and was not passed.
Kansas City Senators Kiki Curls and Jason Holsman says they hope they can buy some time, even if the take over bill is passed this year.
Curls and Holsman want the Missouri Education Chief, Chris Nicastro, to wait until the new state school test scores coming out in late summer before making any move.
The KC school district administration hopes those scores will show more academic improvement. The hope the improved scores could lead to provisional accreditation and stave off a state take-over.
