How We Got Here

A Kansas City Education Timeline

Share this story

It has taken us more than a century to get here. That’s the first thing we come to realize as we explore the current state of K-12 education systems across the Kansas City metro. A host of interesting characters, challenging times, and complex issues created both the successes and failures we’re currently experiencing in districts from Blue Valley to Hickman Mills to Kansas City, Kansas. Come with us as we examine the past and seek to learn from our collective experiences.

Follow Take Note: Our City. Our Schools. Our Future as together, we tell the stories that matter, the stories that make an impact. We want to know — what stories do you have for us, and what can we find out for you? Email us at contact@takenotekc.org.
