Brownback Blasts Davis on Education Funding Vote

KSAL StaffAugust 25, 2014

Incumbent Republican Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback says his Democratic challenger’s opposition to a school funding bill this year shows that Paul Davis isn’t the right person to lead the state.

Davis responded Monday that he voted against the education bill, which included an additional $129 million in school funding, because it also tied the new money to a measure eliminating some job protection rights for teachers.

The Kansas City Star reports Brownback’s comments came after an event in Merriam where he announced new educational goals for his second term.

Davis pointed out that many moderate Republican lawmakers also opposed the bill because of the job protection issue.

Brownback says local school districts are free to implement their own appeals process for teachers to replace the one the state eliminated.
