School Curriculum Changes Sought

KSAL StaffFebruary 16, 2015

Some Kansas lawmakers and interest groups see the upheaval in education funding as an opportunity to tweak school curriculums.

Governor Sam Brownback said he plans to repeal the current school funding formula and instead fund each school district via block grants. Some Republican lawmakers and conservative groups have said they see the shakeup as an opportunity to change school curriculums as well. One measure in the Kansas Legislature would repeal the Common Core guidelines.

Lawmakers have also proposed refocusing classrooms on preparing students for vocational careers.

Democratic Minority Leader and Senator Anthony Hensley of Topeka said the proposals are out of touch with the way the education system operates.
