Middle School at the End?

Kansas City, Missouri’s superintendent, Anthony Amato, thinks that the district should eliminate middle schools.

“That model (K-8) has less suspensions, less expulsions and higher academic results,” Amato has said.

Says the Star, “K-8s have seen a revival, particularly in large-city school districts with high poverty that have struggled with academic performance and declining enrollment.”
