Most of the attention the issue of education gets in Missouri is focused on Saint Louis and Kansas City Public Schools. However, it is also important to note that students in other districts are struggling to access a high quality education as well. Therefore, when I came across this article, I thought it was important to share the struggles as well as some of the innovative solutions being proposed. I was most impressed by the willingness of the administration in the Mehlville school district to identify the problem and think outside the box to ensure that students are ready for high school. I can’t wait to see the results.
