Republican Gov. Sam Brownback is rallying Republican activists to promote what he says is the Kansas economic comeback after the state's primary election showed significant dissent within the GOP.
Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback says a meeting with legislators and a small group of Kansas school superintendents has laid the foundation for future dialogue on public education.
Brownback met for more than an hour in his office Monday with House and Senate Republican leaders, superintendents and the president of the Kansas Association of School Boards.
The governor convened the gathering to start what he hopes is a conversation about academic performance and avoiding future lawsuits over state funding for schools. He says more meetings are expected.
Superintendents said they found Monday’s meeting productive and that all parties shared the goal of doing what’s best for the state’s 450,000 public school students.
