K.C. schools to try grouping students by ability, not grade

This is an excellent idea. Allowing advanced students to move through the curriculum at a pace appropriate for them will give them the opportunity to expand on their experiences and reach a higher potential. Too often gifted students end up doing "seat time" while the rest of the student population catches up. This leads to disengagement and laziness.
Conversely, slower paced students will be allowed the time to focus on the areas they need to in order to master skills necessary to move through the curriculum effectively. No more moving on just because it's the end of another school year.
Whomever decided that students should be grouped by age and not ability had it all wrong. This strategy could well be the way to get our country back on track in competing with other nations.
Way to go, Superintendent Covington!

After city fills in cracks, road markings become patchy

By the way, interesting that LJW posts a photo of one or two repair lines going through Kasold when the article is written about North 2nd and 3rd Streets. Not a fair representation. You should see the mass of goo on those streets in North Lawrence!

After city fills in cracks, road markings become patchy

There are so many tar lines from the so-called repair on North 2nd Street, it's downright dizzying driving through there. Repainting the lines won't help this distraction. I would say if there are so many cracks in the asphalt that there will be more tar than asphalt remaining, it's time to repave!
