Should the Kansas Legislature invest $1 billion more into education?
Asked at Borders Books, Music and Cafe, 700 N.H. on December 3, 2003
“I think they should pay it if it’s not right; if money hasn’t been distributed evenly among students.”
“I don’t think they’re going to end up spending a billion dollars. I think there will be some compromise reached.”
“They should if they are going to fund schools properly, but funding per pupil is not correct. Large districts get more money than small districts, but to fund a school takes the same amount of money either way.”
“Yes. Education is important because it’s the next generation that will be doing things. A lot of things they spend money on are more popular than important.”
