Part Of Education Law To Be Challenged

KSAL StaffJune 6, 2014

The largest teachers’ union in Kansas says it will mount a legal challenge to parts of a new law that will end guaranteed tenure in public schools and encourage corporate funding for private school scholarships.

The Kansas National Education Association announced Friday that it would have a news conference at 11 a.m. Monday at its Topeka headquarters.

The announcement said the legal challenge would cover “aspects” of an education law approved this year by the Republican-dominated Legislature. It was not more specific, and KNEA officials wouldn’t comment.

The new law boosts aid to poor school districts, but starting in July, it will end guaranteed teacher tenure. It also grants up to $10 million in tax credits a year to corporations that bankroll private-school scholarships for at-risk children.
