We respectfully ask the The Kansas City Zoo to consider offering a greater price reduction to FOTZ Members and non-members alike for homeschool classes (When Science Attacks). The upcoming price increase of 80% for FOTZ members (from $5 per child to $9) and the additional charge of the school rate admission ($5) for non-members (a 50% increase with zoo admission) is unnecessarily high.

Families with multiple children will be the most adversely affected by this price hike and will discourage faithful attendees from signing up. Many homeschooling families already support the zoo additionally by bringing younger children to the preschool Science Adventure Club on the same day.

While a small price increase of 10-20% is understandable for inflation or staffing purposes, we ask you to put this price increase into perspective for families on budgets. Many choose to purchase memberships at the zoo (and not at other Kansas City educational venues) to both support our amazing zoo AND to take advantage of these top-notch classes.

In 2013, the zoo increased the amount of homeschool classes because of the high demand for these excellent sessions. Any FOTZ member invests in the zoo financially for its educational diversity, quality, and value. The homeschool class is a tremendous value members and non-members alike enjoy!

Please lower the new price so that homeschooling families can continue to endorse the zoo as much as possible!
