Kansas City charter school succeeds in urban environment

USD 259, the Wichita public school district, doesn’t want them.

The Kansas National Education Association (KNEA) — the teachers union — doesn’t want them either.

But where they’re able to exist, charter schools usually do a good job. They often excel. And where they don’t do a good job, they usually go out of business.

200 miles from Wichita, in Kansas City, Missouri, a charter school is doing a great job with urban children. Watch the following video about KIPP Endeavor Academy.


  • I’ve heard about this amazing school in Kansas City and the wonderful things they are doing for middle school students. What a wonderful concept – to provide a healthy alternative (not to mention a little competition) to a decaying school district. Now if we could just do something like this in Wichita!

  • The school is doing amazing things. I visited a couple months ago. Students give the tours. The proof is in their results – they are making years worth of growth in just months.
