KCK Might Get a New Charter School

Somehow we overlooked this promising piece of news: a KIPP charter school may be coming to KCK. KIPP, which stands for Knowledge is Power Program, shows what charter schools can do.  (See, for example, this list of reports on the organization.)

The KIPP charter school in KCK hopes to attract urban settlers who are looking for a school at which to enroll their children. It has the backing of the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation and Metropolitan Community College-Kansas City.
