To the editor:
Sunday the Kansas Legislature took advantage of the late hour and the exhaustion factor to keep the erasure of due process for new teachers and the elimination of tenure for experienced teachers in the K-12 education bill.
Voters (parents, teachers, educators including university faculty, students), wake up. We the people must review the votes made by representatives on probation (first term) and representatives with tenure (secure seats). Unlike the teaching profession, recruitment in politics is intended to vacate a seat. Now is the time to run for office and restore good decision making. This is the only way to eradicate a very serious threat to democracy in Kansas.
