What Are the Best Schools in the Kansas City Metroplex?
By J. Randolph Swope
Short answer: there are none.
While Pembroke Hill was long considered the quintessential WASP school of Kansas City, it has succumbed to the pressures of Cultural Marxism. Through massive affirmative action, 23% of the student body is now minority. In short, my friends, Pembroke Hill is going ghetto. It's not worth the money.
And what about minorities? While North Asians (Chinese, Japanese, Koreans) are not a problem - in fact, they're usually great students - blacks and mestizos will inevitably bring down the quality of a school. Yes, despite all the propaganda you've heard, racial differences in IQ do exist.
As Robert Weissberg notes in Bad Students, Not Bad Schools, only a small percentage of a school has to become black before the school begins to decline academically.
It's odd that school administrators are bending over backwards to promote diversity, when the largest study ever done on diversity shows that racial diversity destroys institutions.
While many public school districts in the Kansas City area were at one time exceptional (e.g. Blue Valley, Shawnee Mission, Park Hill, Lee's Summit, etc.) all these have the same Trojan Horse: apartment complexes. These apartment complexes are now the landing pads of blacks and mestizos fleeing from the inner city, bringing multiple problems to these school districts. Not to mention that many public school educators are idiots who are more interested in promoting political correctness than knowledge. (Read the outstanding blogger EdRealist for documentation.)
There are some religious schools, but many of these are run by fundamentalist wackos who seem more interested in reducing their inclusive fitness in adopting Haitian children than quality education. Not to mention many are hostile toward Darwinism, the greatest politically incorrect discovery of our age.
What schools offer a traditional WASP curriculum? I mean a Euro-centric curriculum, High Culture, Advanced Mathematics, Science, Darwinism, Latin, German and French, et al?
The answer: Homeschool. Sadly, that may now be the best school in Kansas City.
And before you begin in the comments to call me the R-word, the only R-word I am is a realist. The British economist Martin Sewell sums it up best: "So-called racism is a perfectly natural in-group bias which has been stigmatized by the politically correct West." Time for us to think more like the Chinese.
