Back to School Event Helps Kansas City Children, Families

Bookmark and Share
Several thousand Kansas City area children were able to get fully prepared for the upcoming school year on saturday at the KC Back to School Event held at the Manual Career and Technical Center.

Thousands of children from low-income areas were able to receive school supplies, immunizations, books, uniforms and more. The event comes in the wake of the Kansas City School Board's decision to close several schools in the area, which garnered criticism from the general public.

While the event may have been a saving-face maneuver from the school board, it is comforting to see money and resources benefiting students and their families directly. With school closings and funding being cut in other education-related areas such as bus routes, sending a message of support to students and families was a good move by the Kansas City School District.
