Kansans tell Brownback their ideas on school finance

Associated Press - December 10, 2016 4:17 pm

Kansans responded to Gov. Sam Brownback’s request for input on school finance with scores of ideas and observations, ranging from a substitute teacher who recommended dropping school sports to another person who floated a sales tax for education.

The governor issued his call in August and accepted input through November to a special email address. The governor’s office opened the emails to inspection on Friday.

The Topeka Capital-Journal reports (http://j.mp/2gubEms) the missives came ahead of a legislative session at which lawmakers aim to craft a new school finance formula.

In a statement, Brownback said educators, parents and students submitted quality proposals.
