On the road to defunding public education:
Darin Chappell @DKChappell
I’ve heard the arguments, and examined the data. I am convinced it is time for school choice in Missouri.
No child should be confined to a failing school simply because of his/her zip code. The only decision makers for where a child should be educated are the parents.

Some of the responses:
Care to share the data, Darin? I’d love to see it.
Defund public schools, transfer the money to private interests, profit!
I like how easily “school choice” proponents concede to failing schools instead of working to make them better schools.
An F U to the kids that remain at those schools
Fun fact Missouri schools would not be failing if the MO GOP hadn’t been systematically working to defund public education for the last 20+ years.
Dude, you did no research.
Your words do nothing but repeat what the Koch driven school choice people say.
“School Choice” will always be for those that can afford it. Prove me wrong.
You’ve examined the data?
Please share all of it specifically.
Have you really examined the data? If you had, you would see it shows school choice mainly just ends up giving public money to families who are already in private schools. Private schools also don’t do any better academically than public schools when you adjust for income.
If you don’t live in a metropolitan area, where’s the choice?
Wouldn’t be any failing schools if MO would properly fund them.
I see you have the nice Republican/DeVos talking point. Show the data.
Are you for removing tax money from the state to give to private schools that only accept certain students?
That’s how it’s designed to work.
You clearly have NOT examined the data, and I’m skeptical you’ve listened to anyone who opposes the destruction of public education.
Standard conservative policy: starve a public service to the point of failure, point at the system you broke and say “See? It’s broken! Public services don’t work!” then divert the funds to a private model that delivers greater inequality and (bonus!) religious indoctrination.
We have open enrollment available. Also, who will transport students? That costs a lot of money. What about students with disabilities? Private and charter schools don’t have to accept all students. Sit in a classroom all day.
I would also like to see the data. How are we suppose to support an idea or even debate an idea without evidence?
Please share the data. I’ll compare it with the level of funding over the years and see if there’s any correlation. If true, then I would argue that politicians intentionally sabotaged our schools as part of a larger agenda of re-routing public funds to private institutions.
Share the data, please.
We rank 49th in school funding. Can you imagine what we could do if we actually funded our schools and educators?
So shouldn’t the school receive more funding to fix problems rather than abandoning it?
more adequate | fixed it for you
You want tax dollars to go into the pockets of your rich friends that own private schools, just say it out loud already.
If schools are failing, you’re responsible. The teachers and administrators of any school wants a quality education for all of their students. You have failed to give them the resources to do the job.
“I’ve heard the arguments, and examined the data”, you mean you’ve had your pockets lined? What data are you referring to? FUND PUBLIC SCHOOLS! Missouri is 49th in teacher pay, we have a 6.3 billion dollar surplus. There are NO excuses. FUND OUR PUBLIC SCHOOLS.
“I don’t mind condemning disadvantaged people under the guise of helping the “right” people.” Sure friend, sure.
Maybe you should try equitably funding school districts instead of using “school choice” as a crutch for failed Republican policies.
Try using your 20 year GOP Supermajority in Missouri to improve public education instead of destroying it.
They have a plan.
It’s kinda hard for public schools to succeed when states continue to underfund schools and underfund teachers but I know that the long game here!!Its amazing old white conservative so called Christians want to take it back to 1830!
The arguments and data that exist only in your head.
So you don’t care if the schools in Rogersville close? With over 2000 kids that would likely devastate the local economy. As long as you get campaign money though, right?
It’s a scam. Attempting to drive public schools into privatization.
So you’ll write a law to ensure private schools can not charge any amount beyond what the government will pay? Sounds great!
No profit. Not gonna happen.
You made this up. Research shows that public schools offer the best education, are more transparent to parents and provide a sense of community. You’re a charter shill.
School choice doesn’t fix problems. It does absolutely nothing to address why schools are having problems. Terrible policy for lawmakers to take up.
Nope that means the school gets to choose the students.
If you’re a family of 4 living on $32,000/year living north of Rogersville on hwy B, what choice do you have?
1/ I have heard the arguments & examined the data. I’m convinced its time for the state to average the state & local per pupil spending in the 5 highest performing districts in the state & state fund every public district that same combined amt. Put that $6 billion to good use
Public Schools were setup so all ppl regardless of class can attend What is taught there is to be neutral as possible We pay taxes for the whole of society just like infrastructure
If you want something else you pay for it out of pocket This should be the end of that conversation
Curious as to how much in campaign contributions Herzog donated to you?
They didn’t have to, he ran unopposed:

Darin Chappell Republican 13,708 100.0%
Total Votes 13,708
Also, as a “Conservative Constitutionalist,” what are your feelings on the 3/5 Compromise? Time to bring it back, or does your constitutionalist conservatism only go so far? On that tip: Care to *define* “conservative constitutionalism?” Can you do so using specifics?
Have you considered… I don’t know… funding schools? Like where were you educated?
Heh. Because I are an education expert
So your solution, instead of improving schools, is to take away money from “bad” schools, which are “bad” because they’re already underfunded. For example Kirkwood has the “best” school. Average home value is over 400k. Ranked 100th is aurora R8 where the values are under 200k
So we should follow along cause another MoGOPer says they examined the data? Was the data the amount private companies will make per pupil?
Invest in schools, it is the most efficient and effective way to save and improve public education. Choice takes resources away from many to help a few. Robbing from the needy to help the rich. #SchoolChoice is a failed program.
So the GOP approach to “starve the beast and it will die” approach to eliminate public schools is working it seems.
That’s their plan.
Twenty years of GOP budget cuts on the necks of our kids is the origin. Let’s equalize school fu[n]ding across zip codes then and allow local schools to compete. But then again, that’s not your intent, is it?
Since ‘choice’ is the key word…they will ‘select’ only the best which allows them to look successful…behavior, slower learners, special education students will be not be selected.
The actual purpose is to fund parents that select private and religious schools!
That’s their plan.
What data did you examine? Care to share? Also, what choices do sparsely populated areas have?
So quick question, when parents opt out and go to a “choice” school. Is a bus provided? Before care/ after care? Do you know who will be left behind? Those without the means to get to the “choice” schools.
The data shows that more school funding (and family affluence) contributes to better educational achievement. The answer is to assure ALL schools are adequately funded.
Wow. No hope from you for improving public education in underserved areas? No wonder Missouri has a reputation of being a backwater hell hole. Lazy representatives.
“School Choice” is the “Right to Work” of the “Contract With America” #MObullshit
What a bunch of BS! No taxpayer money should be used for private schools. That is just another means of segregation! Public schools would be better funded if they were a priority, but you only want to educate those that a few legislators think are worthy instead of everyone.
You’re an idiot if you think this gaslighting works!
Please cite the “data”. Otherwise your comments are just more moronic drivel. Your opinions are NOT facts.

The bill language:
SECOND REGULAR SESSION
HOUSE BILL NO. 1634
101ST GENERAL ASSEMBLY
INTRODUCED BY REPRESENTATIVE SEITZ.
3667H.01I DANA RADEMAN MILLER, Chief Clerk
To amend chapter 170, RSMo, by adding thereto one new section relating to curricula
implementing critical race theory.
Be it enacted by the General Assembly of the state of Missouri, as follows:
Section A. Chapter 170, RSMo, is amended by adding thereto one new section, to be known as section 170.353, to read as follows:
170.353. 1. In accordance with Article IX, Section 1(a) of the Missouri Constitution, which states that “A general diffusion of knowledge and intelligence being essential to the preservation of the rights and liberties of the people”, and to ensure that the intellectual vitality of students and faculty is not infringed, the general assembly hereby enacts the following reform for history curricula used in schools and institutions of higher education in this state.
2. As used in this section, “curriculum implementing critical race theory” includes, but is not limited to, any curriculum that:
(1) Identifies people or groups of people, entities, or institutions in the United States as inherently, immutably, or systemically sexist, racist, anti-LGBT, bigoted, biased, privileged, or oppressed; and
(2) Employs immutable, inherited, or typically continuing characteristics such as race, income, appearance, religion, ancestry, sexual orientation, or gender identity to:
(a) Perpetuate stereotypes; and
(b) Assign blame for societal problems or ills to categories of living persons based on any such stereotypes or characteristics; or
(3) Classifies persons into groups for the purpose of targeting only certain groups for education, formation, indoctrination, or viewpoint transformation, other than separation of students by biological sex where appropriate and conducive for state20 mandated sex education instruction.
3. For purposes of this section, curriculum implementing critical race theory includes, but is not limited to, the following:
(1) The 1619 Project initiative of the New York Times;
(2) The Learning for Justice Curriculum of the Southern Poverty Law Center;
(3) We Stories;
(4) Programs of:
(a) Educational Equity Consultants;
(b) BLM at School;
(c) Teaching for Change; or
(d) The Zinn Education Project; or
(5) Any other similar predecessor or successor curriculum.
4. No state department, school district, charter school, online instruction funded in any manner by the general assembly, or personnel or agent of such state department, school district, charter school, or online instruction shall teach, use, or provide for use by any pupil any curriculum, instructional material, or assignment designed to teach components of critical race theory as part of any curriculum, course syllabus, or instruction in any course or program of study.
5. (1) If the state board of education determines that a publicly funded local education agency or online program of instruction has violated this section, the board shall notify the entity of its violation.
(2) If such entity fails to comply with this section within thirty days of such notification, the state board of education shall direct the department of elementary and secondary education to withhold a maximum of ten percent of the monthly distribution of state formula funding to such entity. After the board determines that such entity is in compliance with this section, the department shall restore the distribution of the funding to its original amount before the percentage of the distribution was withheld.
6. (1) If the attorney general determines that a two-year or four-year institution of higher education that receives state moneys has violated this section, the attorney general shall notify the institution of its violation.
(2) If such institution fails to comply with this section within thirty days of such notification, the attorney general may direct the department of higher education and workforce development to withhold a maximum of ten percent of the distribution of state funding to such institution. After the attorney general determines that such institution is in compliance with this section, the attorney general shall notify the department to restore the distribution of state funding for the institution to its original amount before the reduction was made if any such funding was withheld.
7. This section shall not be construed to:
(1) Inhibit or violate the First Amendment rights of students or faculty;
(2) Undermine the duty of a public institution of higher education to protect intellectual freedom and free expression to the fullest degree; or
(3) Prevent a public institution of higher education from promoting racial, cultural, ethnic, intellectual, or academic diversity or inclusiveness, provided such efforts are consistent with the provisions of this section.
“…This section shall not be construed to…Inhibit or violate the First Amendment rights of students or faculty; Undermine the duty of a public institution of higher education to protect intellectual freedom and free expression to the fullest degree; or Prevent a public institution of higher education from promoting racial, cultural, ethnic, intellectual, or academic diversity or inclusiveness, provided such efforts are consistent with the provisions of this section…”
It does just that:
“…No state department, school district, charter school, online instruction funded in any manner by the general assembly, or personnel or agent of such state department, school district, charter school, or online instruction shall teach, use, or provide for use by any pupil any curriculum, instructional material, or assignment designed to teach components of critical race theory as part of any curriculum, course syllabus, or instruction in any course or program of study…”
What, we’re all stupid?
“…If such institution fails to comply with this section within thirty days of such notification, the attorney general may direct the department of higher education and workforce development to withhold a maximum of ten percent of the distribution of state funding to such institution…”
Must have left out the part about reeducation camps. That’ll get fixed with an amendment.

“…In Missouri, state funding accounts for about 32% of per-student funding. That places Missouri at 49th nationally for percentage of school resources coming from state funding. As a result, schools rely heavily on local sources like property taxes to fund schools…”
Auditor Galloway’s examination of K-12 school funding trends finds Missouri ranks 49th in school funding from state resources
Unlike most other states, Missouri schools rely heavily on local sources to fund classrooms; Foundation Formula funding has not grown with inflation
Missouri State Auditor Nicole Galloway today released a report that examined funding trends in K-12 education in the state. The report found Missouri ranks near the bottom for the portion of classroom funding that comes from state sources and the formula calculating per-student funding has not kept up with inflation.
“The state is not stepping up to meet the needs of students in Missouri, shifting the burden and leaving Missourians paying higher property taxes to support their schools,” Auditor Galloway said. “The opportunity for a quality education is key to ensuring economic growth. My report details the facts that can spur change at the state level so we no longer rank at the bottom when it comes to supporting schools.”
The report looked at the portion of school funding that comes from state sources. In Missouri, state funding accounts for about 32% of per-student funding. That places Missouri at 49th nationally for percentage of school resources coming from state funding. As a result, schools rely heavily on local sources like property taxes to fund schools.
The issue of Missourians carrying a greater tax burden at the local level was first discussed by Auditor Galloway in a report released in February 2018 that examined the state’s annual budgeting process. That report found 68 percent of local school districts had seen an increase in reliance on local funding over the past 10 years.
The report also looked at funding provided through the State Adequacy Target (SAT), the mechanism used to determine whether the state has met its obligation to fund schools. This funding has not kept up with inflation.
The report looked at 10 years of data and found that from 2013-2017, the state did not meet its per-student funding obligation, a number that is based on average operating expenditures of the 25 top-performing school districts. Changes were made to the formula to cap growth and limit increases. While these changes have resulted in the formula being fully funded, the current formula to calculate the amount distributed has not kept up with inflation.
We’re 49th! We’re 49th! We’re 49th…

Here’s what I know after years in public education: teachers will be blamed for any perceived lack of learning during this pandemic. It’ll be “unions” or “lazy teachers” or “low standards”.
It won’t make any sense, but it never does.

The American Federation for Children is a 501(c)(4) organization that does lobbying and grassroots advocacy work in the states and Washington, D.C. We are affiliated with the American Federation for Children Action Fund, a political committee that supports and opposes state-level candidates for elected office. We work closely with our educational partner, the American Federation for Children Growth Fund, a 501(c)(3) organization, to promote the benefits of—and the need for—school choice, make parents aware of their options, mobilize grassroots supports and ensure private school choice laws work for students.
Ah, defunding and dismantling public education.

There’s been some, albeit far too little, discussion of the harm that the Republican tax bill will do to colleges and universities. However, the nastiness hidden in the tax-cuts-for-the-wealthy bill that passed the Senate last night will also hurt public schools:
Under SALT, income that paid for public schools went untaxed at the federal level. Current law allows states that raise taxes to better fund public schools to receive a deduction through SALT. The Senate bill ends that ability. As states struggle to lessen the impact of the tax bill on citizens, there will be an outsized amount of pressure on the taxes that typically help public schools.
Missouri’s boy Governor, Eric Greitens, is a big beneficiary of the largess of Donald Trump’s Secretary of Education, Betsy DeVos and her family. As ThinkProgress observes, these tax provisions are simply setting the table for her efforts to privatize public education. And here in Missouri, Greitens has been getting a head start clearing the table in order to to make Betsy’s job easier.
In an extraordinarily awkward power play, Greitens played musical chairs with the State Board of Education – firing and replacing its members over and over – until he packed it in just the right way to begin to implement the Devos agenda. His first step: Fire respected Public Education advocate, Commissioner Margie Vendeven, who, since her appointment in 2015, has done a remarkable job given the poor level of state education funding. Next step: Find and appoint an Commissioner who will be amenable to political direction and oversee the expansion of charter schools and the extension of public funding to private and religious schools. Odds are that Missouri under Greitens – and with the educational tweaking encouraged by the GOP middle-class-tax-increase bill – will soon have a well-established dual educational track, one for well-off families and a default public system that will, as the effect of neglect accumulates further than even at present, wither.
In spite of all the hype about drastic measures needed to rescue our “failing” educational system, it works just fine for those living in affluent areas where the bulk of school funding is channeled via property taxes. That could change, though, as funds are diverted to the private sphere. Nor should you expect the charter school part of the equation to help those in areas where the public school system is not adequately funded. Privatizing education and eliminating the type of oversight we have been able to institute in our public school system will not help anyone. Charters, like public schools, show good results when they have full resources and well-prepared students. When they don’t, they perform no better than the worst public schools.
Our universal, public educational system has long been one of our national treasures – it has been one of the main drivers of our prosperity and one of the best guarantors of our democracy. It is sad and infuriating to see it decimated by selfish, dim-witted plutocrats and politicians like Greitens, up for sale to the highest bidder. But you better get used to despair and anger over the destruction of all that was good about our way of life; it looks like that’s just the way it’s going to be in the new American oligarchy.

“…People need to know, all the major policies that have been announced so far by the Trump administration, all of them disadvantage rural Missouri…”
Senator Claire McCaskill (D) continued her face to face contact with constituents in Missouri on Saturday with several events in Kansas City.
The Greater Kansas City Women’s Political Caucus hosted a forum with Senator McCaskill midday. Close to one hundred fifty individuals attended. The Senator spoke for about twenty minutes then took questions for about an hour.
One of the questions was on Donald Trump’s (r) policies and agriculture in Missouri:
Senator Claire McCaskill (D): [….]
….People need to know, all the major policies that have been announced so far by the Trump administration, all of them disadvantage rural Missouri. [voice: “Yes.”]
Um, the health insurance plan, um, a, a farmer in Ralls County that makes thirty thousand dollars a year and is sixty years old, his premiums would go from about twenty-five hundred a year to about twelve thousand dollars a year under the plan that was passed by the House. That’s because he’s older and because he lives in a rural area. And those two things are a double whammy on their plan.
The second thing that hurts rural Missouri is education. Um, what they don’t, they haven’t figured out, [Secretary of Education] Betsy DeVos hasn’t figured out that the vast majority of my state there is no choice. [voices: “That’s right.”][applause] I mean, most people out in rural Missouri, there’s not a lot of private schools to pick from. There’s a public school system. Period. It’s the beating heart of those communities. And when you cream, when you skim the cream and money from public school it is directly hurting rural school districts so that private schools in the cities can get more money. Um, so that’s the second thing he’s done to rural Missouri.
The third thing he’s done to rural Missouri is his infrastructure plan. His infrastructure plan that we have seen, the only one we’ve seen, depends on private investment. Now I got news for you. Nobody wants to build a road and put toll on it between Chillicothe and Albany. [laughter] Nobody wants to fix a bridge down in Shannon County because there’s not enough traffic on it for it to make money for a private business. And when you do private infrastructure what you’re saying is we’re gonna toll roads and toll bridges. ‘Cause no private business invest in a road unless they’re gonna get their money back. [voice: “Right.”] They have to have a source of revenue.
Now I’m not, Missouri doesn’t have any tolling, and if other states want to toll, that’s fine. But I think we’ve got to make sure that the White House understands that for rural Missouri, for all of Missouri, we need to make sure there’s public money in the infrastructure bill so the needs can be met even if they’re not in highly trafficked areas. Okay.
The fourth thing, and the thing Kay was referring to, is trade. When you do bilateral trade deals and you cut countries off from multilateral trade deals. That causes retaliation. Okay. There is like, okay, you’re gonna do this to us, we’re gonna do this to you. There’s, for every action in the trade area there is a reaction. So, it’s not as simple as going that’s a bad deal we’re getting out of it. It’s what can we get in that will protect our agricultural economy in Missouri. And the, the scary thing about his back and forth on NAFTA in the last week, first of all, not only does that dramatically affect our corn growers and our bean growers ‘cause their number one export is Canada, their number two export is Mexico, their number three export is China, not only is it dramatically affect them it also affects companies like Kansas City Southern, the railroad, the big building downtown with lots of employees. Their stock went down five percent just when he said we’re gonna withdraw from NAFTA. Now, then he went back and reversed it. You know, he said, never mind the day. [laughter] But, this uncertainty with our agricultural economy in Missouri , and that has ripple effect all the way to the very, very heart of both Kansas City and St. Louis.
So, Mexico doesn’t have to buy corn from us. They can buy corn from Brazil. Um, China can, is, they’re about to open up foreign ownership in Brazil, China can buy a bunch of land in Brazil and grow cotton there and bring it back to China.
So, we’ve got to be really careful and there’s no question that our corn growers and our bean growers are in jeopardy with some of the trade policies that President Trump is talking about….
And yet, a majority in Missouri voted for him. Anyone think they’ll figure it out?
