Governor Proposes Linking School Funding To Performance

KSAL StaffFebruary 1, 2015

Gov. Sam Brownback has said he wants to tie school funding to student performance.

Brownback discussed the concept Friday while speaking to the Agri-Business Council of Wichita. Brownback said earlier this month that he wanted to ditch the current school-finance formula and fund the state’s districts with interim block grants for the next two years.

In his speech, Brownback elaborated on his plans. He said possible performance markers include whether high school graduates are prepared for college or the workforce. He said that’s what schools are “supposed to get done” and that she should be penalized if they fail.

Senate Minority Leader Anthony Hensley, D-Topeka, questioned the wisdom of rewarding high-performing school districts, which also tend to be the richer ones.
