Should the Kansas Legislature's responsibility for funding schools NOT include such programs and services as nursing, counseling, libraries, music, sports or early childhood programs?

Poll results

Response Percent
No. This is just the Legislature’s way of trying to duck responsibility for funding the programs now in place.
 
48%
No. This puts many programs, such as band, libraries and sports, at risk of being eliminated.
 
31%
Yes. It helps to define that the state’s role in providing a “suitable” education starts in the classroom. Other programs and services should be the funding responsibility of local school districts.
 
15%
Yes. This will put more control into the hands of local school boards.
