Brownback Urges Schools to Move More Money Into Classroom

KSAL StaffAugust 11, 2015

Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback is urging districts to move more of the money they get into the classroom and hold down administrative costs of running the school.

The Republican governor made to comment to reporters Tuesday after addressing educators attending a training session on a reading initiative funded by welfare funds.

His advice comes as school districts across the state grapple with funding cuts.

Brownback says Kansas law requires districts to spend two-thirds of their funding in the classroom, but only a handful of districts actually get that done.

But Mark Farr, the president of the state’s largest teacher’s union, says teachers need the support of a whole school to be successful in a classroom. He says if the governor really wants to help schools, he would fund schools.
