Kansas City Schools closing

The Kansas City Public School system will be closing almost half of their schools in light of budget problems. While laying off teachers or compromising books and other educational materials is not the best way to solve the problem, I hope they have significant statistics to deal with a decrease in population to back up this decision otherwise they are going to be dealing with severe overcrowding and potentially greater loss of students (and citizens) as they will look for alternatives, which could include moving to other municipalities and/or finding the means to go to private, parochial or charter schools.
