The Kansas City School board has voted narrowly to keep Benjamin Demps on the job as superintendent. Demps says, after the 5-4 vote, the school board now needs to step back and let him do his job. Board members have chafed at Demps leadership, though they decline to be specific. State school officials have stressed the importance of keeping Demps in place if the district hopes to regain its accreditation.
