To the editor:
Word on the street in the state capital sounds like this: “We feel we have been generous to Kansas school district funding. We feel the monies have been mismanaged.” That’s the word, like it or not. So, I will ask the question: Are the funds being mismanaged?
After reviewing the proposed budget, I noticed there are a lot of unemcumbered line items with no description, purchase of land and architectural funds allocated for that specific land purchase. Tell me about those.
We all know small, local schools are good for kids. Consolidation is the new national “phenomenon.” “No child left behind” is good in theory. Where are we headed?
Seems school districts are top heavy with administration.
As the old saying goes, “If you want fat cows, feed them, don’t weigh them!”
