Re: Rams leaving St. Louis?

As the NFL moves closer to returning to Los Angeles, the dominos are falling in a way that has some speculating that the Oakland Raiders could end up in St. Louis when all is said and done.

Re: The KCMO School District

what I continue to find interesting in NKC HS is more diverse than most of the KCMO schools. It's roughly 60% white. The southern northland is one place people move to when they leave the KCPSD when they want a quality education. That's the problem with integration, it doesn't help when the black a...

Re: The News Room, closed

that being said, what would you say the KU/MU split is in KC? Depends very much on which part of the region. I would estimate that anywhere north of the river and the eastern burbs (Independence, Blue Springs, Lee's Summit, etc.) are heavily MU biased, while all of JoCo and points south and west ar...

Re: The KCMO School District

Lincoln is a great school, but it's a lottery to get in. It's not big enough to handle 500 more students that AL would provide. Not sure where you've read/heard that. Currently, it's test scores, first come, first served. But yes, space would become an issue. Lincoln isn't even at full capacity, is...

Re: The KCMO School District

From what I hear about the question/argument of "why not have AL kids test in as well?"is this general Charter school rule: "Charter schools operate independently from the local district, and they are not allowed to have admissions criteria. For example, a charter school cannot require students to ...

[...but the net impact of AL on the district's surplus buildings is essentially zero. As is AL's impact on keeping people from moving to the burbs. Not true. I have at least five families that I know that have moved to Kansas because they didn't get picked in the AL lottery system. They couldn't af...

Re: The KCMO School District

The best thing that could happen to downtown with schools is to split off and join the NKC district. Districts already cross county borders so no worries there. NKC HS is 10 minutes from downtown. Van Horn and it's feeders moved to Independence schools so there's a precedent already. what is the po...

Then explain to me how Kathleen Sebelius, a Democrat, got elected as governor of Kansas, and Dennis Moore, a Democrat, got elected as Congressman? They weren't elected by rural Kansas voters. The only reason they were able to be elected in Kansas is because of suburban voters in the KC Metro, who a...

gosh, i guess you would think san antonio and austin could support an NFL team. st. louis is a weirdly small NFL TV market. i think that indy and nashville really cut into that market that the cardinals own, and i've seen plenty of bears/cardinals crossover in the larger central illinois cities. th...
