Kansans tell Brownback their ideas on school finance

KSAL StaffDecember 10, 2016

Kansans responded to Gov. Sam Brownback’s request for input on school finance with scores of ideas and observations, ranging from a substitute teacher who recommended dropping school sports to another person who floated a sales tax for education.

The governor issued his call in August and accepted input through November to a special email address. The governor’s office opened the emails to inspection on Friday.

The Topeka Capital-Journal reports (http://j.mp/2gubEms) the missives came ahead of a legislative session at which lawmakers aim to craft a new school finance formula.

In a statement, Brownback said educators, parents and students submitted quality proposals.
