Parents, Teachers Walk For Kansas Schools

KSAL StaffMarch 31, 2014

Despite sore feet and windy weather, five parents and teachers have completed a 60-mile walk from Johnson County to the Statehouse to show support for Kansas public schools.

The hikers are part of a group called Game On for Kansas Schools, which is supporting higher state spending for public education. They set out Friday from suburban Kansas City and finished a ceremonial last mile Monday in Topeka.

It was the second year for the walk, organized by parents and teachers. They’re urging legislators to abide by a recent Kansas Supreme Court decision ordering additional funding for schools without making changes that would hurt the quality of education.

The group says that schools have had to reduce spending in recent years, resulting in larger class sizes and fewer opportunities for students.
