Kansas City Public Schools revamps approach to early childhood education

Foundation grants to KCPS and KCPT are making a positive difference in early childhood education, according to Jerry Kitzi, director, Office of Early Learning at KCPS. Kitzi cites the upswing experienced by four-year-olds at Woodland, where, at the beginning of last year, only 16 percent had literacy competency but by year-end that number had risen to 82 percent. KCPT produced a video explaining how the community school model works at Woodland.
