KMOX: Suburban Parents Should Demand State Takeover of SLPS

Today KMOX radio in St. Louis aired an editorial calling on suburban St. Louis parents to push for a state takeover of the St. Louis Public Schools.

The editorial started out describing a content suburban St. Louis family getting their kids off to school, thinking they have no input on decisions involving the St. Louis Public Schools.

Then, making the case that the entire St. Louis region has an interest in the performance of the City's public schools, the station urged parents of suburban St. Louis to call for a state takeover of the St. Louis Public Schools.

I'm sorry but if someone lives and works in the burbs, they should have no power or influence when it comes to City issues. They don't contribute to our taxes and they can't vote. They choose to live in a municipality outside of STL. They don't want their kids involved with the SLPS and they should have little say in the matter.
