Education and education reform are often at the forefront of the public consciousness. Currently, three large public school systems in Missouri are at a crossroads: Kansas City Public Schools, which became unaccredited in 2012; the Normandy and Riverview Gardens School Districts of St. Louis, which were re-classified as unaccredited in 2013; and St. Louis Public Schools, whose provisional accreditation was in question after 2013 test results. The education systems in Missouri’s two largest cities, the lifeblood of the state, are in varying states of accreditation, and a looming question, with recent cases such as Breitenfeld v. School District of Clayton, is what is in store for the students and residents living within these cities.
