KANSAS CITY, Mo. - Strong opinions were voiced by Kansas City, Mo., teachers as the school board discussed a new initiative at a meeting on Wednesday night.
The teachers union voiced their frustrations with the district's One-to-One program which gives every student in the district a laptop.
The president of the union, Andrea Flinders, says the district has not planned well for the program and says there is a lot of work left to be done.
“Let me be clear, while we support a well-planned, well-thought-out One-to-One initiative, this initiative is a sham and this union is tired of your antics, we're not going to be ignored anymore,” Flinders said.
Also at Wednesday’s meeting, the board received an update on a series of projects estimated at $32 million.
Those projects include school renovations to several schools and upgrades to auditoriums.
