TOPIC 1: SUPERINTENDENT GRANT?
The future governance of the Kansas City School District remains unclear. Mayor James has offered a plan where he (and future mayors) would serve as head of the district. Another plan features a state-appointed board among whose members would be Gwen. Yael writes that the claim by Gwen and her associates that they are qualified to run the district is “laughable.”
TOPIC 2: NO CHANGE.
The Johnson County Charter Commission has reviewed the governing document and has offered no major changes. One that had been contemplated was a return to partisan elections.
TOPIC 3: SAY GOODBYE TO KCI
It appears inevitable that Kansas City International will undergo major changes over the next decade. Yael is unhappy with the plan and believes many others share his view. KCI was opened in October 1972.
TOPIC 4: HUNTING FOR HUNTSMAN’S APPEAL
Some analysts, including George Will, suggest that Republicans seeking a presidential nominee take a second look at Jon Huntsman. Will says the former Utah governor and Ambassador to China offers the most conservative program.
