Enough is Enough If you are not currently aware, the KCKPS School Board launched an "EnoughisEnough" campaign at the board meeting on Tuesday. I want to encourage you to familiarize yourself with the pledge and, if you choose, support the pledge. Below is an excerpt from the district's website and if you would like to watch the video - CLICK HERE. At the bottom of the excerpt, you can right click the blue letters, select "open link in a new tab," and it will take you right to the pledge.
"We as members of the Kansas City, Kansas School Board want to discuss a growing problem within our community. To be transparent, over the past year our district has lost 18 of our students. Students who would be focused on their futures: heading to college, their first job, and so much more. While not every tragedy was caused the same way, the majority of our students have died due to gun violence, in fact eleven students in less than a year.
Today, we the board declare “ENOUGHISENOUGH.” We along with the entire school district are asking all of YOU to commit to the future of our students, to commit to speaking up when something is wrong, and to commit to making a difference.
This is not just a Kansas City, Kansas Public Schools issue, this is a community issue that we know by working together we can change the outcome of. That is why we are asking not just families and students to sign our pledge for change but for members of our community to join us in making an impact in the lives of our students.
