Kansas Regents Seek Support For Higher College Rate

KSAL StaffDecember 23, 2013

Members of the Kansas Board of Regents plan to ask lawmakers to support the board’s long-range plan to increase the number of Kansans with education beyond high school.

Regent Vice Chairman Kenny Wilk told The Lawrence Journal-World reported heplans to put together a resolution for the Legislature to consider when the 2014 legislative session starts in January. 

Wilk says the the resolution would focus on the board’s Foresight 2020 plan, which aims to increase from 50 percent to 60 percent the number of Kansans who have a post-secondary certificate or credential or an associate’s or bachelor’s degree by 2020.

Republican lawmakers recently approved $34.3 million in cuts to public universities, and Gov. Sam Brownback signed those reductions into law.
