Hickman Mills superintendent leaving to lead Lee's Summit schools



Carpenter suggested that critics of public schools who play down the role of class and racial stratification in K-12 education are kidding themselves. "We resegregated the schools after Brown vs. the Board of Education, that's what we did," he said.
In addition to the frustrations of urban education, Carpenter leaves behind a district with a reputation for dysfunctional governance.
A 2014 state audit found that the Hickman Mills school district had awarded no-bid contracts, was lax in monitoring spending and had violated the Sunshine Law. The auditor's office had to issue subpoenas to one former board member in order to locate some of the contracts.
Of course, the Lee's Summit school district is no stranger to controversy, either. But compared to the challenges of running Hickman Mills schools, Carpenter may feel he's reached another world.
