Neighborhoods need mattresses
I guess they'd take a drug store if one made an offer, but maybe they are asking too much for CVS or Walgreens

Missouri looks like it will be the first state without a PP clinic
not really, it just couldn't provide abortion services, not all PP locations do abortion services

Re: The KCMO School District

My prediction is that it will continue to see a decrease in its African American population until the school board feels the heat from both sides and finally reopens Southwest HS. if they open it to the whole district as a selective school, there could be complaints about it taking the higher achie...

Re: Academie Lafayette

a white kid from a high income 2 parent family would probably do well in the KCMOSD, a minority kid from a lower income single parent household might not do any better in Blue Valley or Lees Summit, possibly even worse the LS superintendent probably moved there from the Hickman Mills SD when he got ...

I would guess nuclear family structure, or lack there of, is more likely to have a correlation to grade scores than anything.
many schools serving blue collar areas like Independence have decent but not great test scores

Re: Academie Lafayette

You can't place this issue on an being minority by any means. Minority students in other district are more likely to graduate. If anyone wanted a model for how to educate all students well it's NKC schools. KCPS is absolutely a failure to manage the district. Four year cohort graduation rate NKC: 9...

Re: Academie Lafayette

All of KCPS is within the city limits of Kansas City. (There used to be a small overlap with Independence, but that was resolved by yielding control of those catchments to the Independence School District.) Yielding? There was an election and then a court battle that validated the election. https:/...

Someone should publish a scholarly analysis of the difference in life outcomes for graduates from 1950-2020 from Center High (serves "Greater Brookside" south of 80th street, really Waldo) and those areas of Brookside which did or would have attended Southwest, but limited to those who actually att...

Re: Plaza move-ins (ongoing)

That's a shame. That'll leave only one Cinemark in the whole metro. Can't help but wonder if they'll exit the market entirely. Also can't discount that the theaters got a disproportionate share of blame for the #TeenLoiteringProblem a few years ago. Given that the new owners seem to go for the easi...

Re: Plaza move-ins (ongoing)

Good opportunity to rehab the old Plaza Theater! Only half joking - would love to see it happen if there is even a fraction of the original theater space and architectural detail left. I don't see this as a huge loss - these theaters took up a ton of space and were empty a lot of the time. Also not...

Re: Politics

According to this, KS has significantly moved away from being the most GOP state now more towards Indie from 2013 to 2017. MO has increased in Indie identity as well but GOP increased higher than KS. http://ava.prri.org/#politics/2017/States/party/m/US-KS,US-MO http://ava.prri.org/#politics/2013/St...
