To the editor:
Here’s an idea. Figure out what it costs per day to provide a quality education for the children of Lawrence. Add in a raise for teachers and other employees, and do not make any more budget cuts. Take the cost per day and divide it into the amount of dollars the state provides for funding K-12 education in Kansas. The result is the number of school days for the school year.
Yes, I know the state requires a specified number of instructional days per year. But, Kansas, you can’t have it both ways. You get what you pay for.
