Bartending school in Kansas City, Missouri is on the brink of closure


— Bartending schools in Kansas and Missouri are struggling to stay afloat amid growing student debt and falling attendance, according to a new report from the National Bartending Association.

The union representing state-licensed, non-profit schools said the schools have experienced a drop in attendance, a cut in state funding and an increase in debt.

The schools, which have existed since before the Civil War, were created in the 1950s by the state’s Legislature to offer education to low-income students, said John Smith, the union’s executive director.

There are now more than a half-million students in the state-approved schools, according a 2015 report by the Kansas Department of Education.

Teachers and administrators say the students are frustrated and angry, saying they are being punished for trying to make ends meet, Smith said.

Many students have dropped out, and the schools are losing state support and funding to cover costs, he said.

The union also said the students have been subjected to racial bias by school officials, who sometimes refer to them as “pigs” and “cows” when discussing students of color.

The schools have also been accused of using the school-record system to discriminate against students who were not white.

Since the unions began organizing, there have been two teacher strikes and several other protests in the Kansas City area, including in the city’s downtown, where a large crowd gathered Saturday to protest a proposal by city officials to change the name of the city park to “Mountain View Park.”

Smith said the state will not have enough money to keep the schools open without additional state funding, which is slated to run out in 2020.

That would leave schools with few other options than closing, he added.

In a statement released Monday, the state Department of Administration said it would look into the union and its claims.

The department did not provide details on its investigation.

In Kansas, a state agency is working to find a new contract for the state schools.

How to help school district with a $2 million donation

A Melbourne school district is trying to raise $2.5 million to cover a $10,000 debt it has to pay to pay the school’s principal, a teacher and the district’s accountant.

The school district has also had to pay back a debt to its treasurer and the school treasurer’s office, who has been handling the district finances since the last budget.

In May, the district agreed to pay $5,000 to the school to cover the debt, but it still needs to pay off the debt.

School treasurer James Molloy said the district was also paying back a $6,000 loan from the Victorian Government.

“We have a lot of work to do and we have to make sure we’re meeting our obligations,” Mr Molloys said.

He said the school district would work with the Treasurer and Treasurer’s office to ensure the school debt was repaid in full.

“It’s going to be a very challenging time for the school,” Mr Yonge said.

“We’ll continue to work through our debt and repay it.”

But it’s going be a challenge.

“Mr Mollhews has been trying to reach the school for more than a month, but the school has refused to pay, saying it has already paid the debt off.”

If we’re going to continue to make payments we’re gonna have to borrow money.””

We’ve been told that we have about $9,000 left to pay our debt, which is about $10k less than what we need to pay.”

If we’re going to continue to make payments we’re gonna have to borrow money.

“That’s going into a new account, which we’re not sure we can do, and so we’re taking out another $10.00 of debt to cover that, so we’ve got about $7k in the hole.”

I think we’re pretty well behind the curve on this.

“He said it was a difficult time for all of the school and community members.”

This is the worst possible time to be in a situation like this,” Mr Cadell said.

He said a lot had changed since he was a student and had not seen his father in years.”

A lot of people, we’ve lost a lot,” he said.
