School Task Force Leader Makes Recommendations
Associated Press - September 17, 2014 6:45 pm
The head of a school efficiency task force is recommending several changes, including incentives for Kansas school districts to consolidate and potential restrictions on teacher bargaining rights.
The Topeka Capital-Journal reports Wichita businessman Sam Williams mailed his recommendations to the members of the task force last week.
The panel’s vice chairman, Jim Hinson, superintendent of Shawnee Mission district, said the recommendations are only a draft and the entire commission has not considered them. He says he personally has questions on several of the proposals.
Hinson said commission members will discuss the draft at meetings later this week.
That commission must submit a report to the Legislature by Jan. 9.
