Muscular Sam and his minions do not want feedback from anyone but their acolytes. This is par for the course.
I wonder if AFP or any of the other alphabet soup of national Koch propaganda organizations has filed a brief.
The only motions to file amicus briefs so far have come from the Emporia school district; KNEA; the Kansas Association of School Boards; Education Law Center; and one individual, Walt Chappell, a former member of the Kansas State Board of Education.
And it looks like the Kansas Supreme court just granted the briefs for the ELC and Mr. Chappell. We will see if any others are added later. I bet the Brownback Bunch are ticked off now. They did not get to stack the Kansas SC in their favor yet. Darn.
"advocates for the rights of students" which Brownback and company do not. They could care less about students.
"Schmidt's office also argues that ELC should be excluded because it has a close relationship with Bruce Baker, a Rutgers University professor who testified as an expert witness during the trial of the Kansas case on behalf of the plaintiffs."
I know you hate brownback, and I don't care, but you don't see a problem there depending on the relationship between Baker and ELC?
Maybe, but probably not.
ELC obviously has a point of view, and apparently it's shared with Baker - what's the issue exactly? They'd just be filing a brief to the court stating their views, right?
Their organization is a "students' rights" organization, so their view is pretty clear to everybody, and it's not surprising that they'd file a brief in favor of higher funding for education.
