Kansas Regents Seek Support For Higher College Rate

Associated Press - December 23, 2013 6:14 pm

Three open seats on the Kansas Board of Regents have yet to be filled even though the board's next meeting is just days away.

Members of the Kansas Board of Regents plan to ask lawmakers to support the board’s long-range plan to increase the number of Kansans with education beyond high school.

Regent Vice Chairman Kenny Wilk told The Lawrence Journal-World reported heplans to put together a resolution for the Legislature to consider when the 2014 legislative session starts in January. 

Wilk says the the resolution would focus on the board’s Foresight 2020 plan, which aims to increase from 50 percent to 60 percent the number of Kansans who have a post-secondary certificate or credential or an associate’s or bachelor’s degree by 2020.

Republican lawmakers recently approved $34.3 million in cuts to public universities, and Gov. Sam Brownback signed those reductions into law.

How does the Board propose educating 60% of Kansas with a college degree when they approve what appears ro be continuous construction of multimillion dollar buildings and raising college the tuition fees and and housing fees? Appears to me the Board is shooting themselves in the foot.
