What grade would you give the Kansas Legislature when it comes to school finance?
Asked at Borders on September 8, 2004
“D as opposed to an F, because their inaction is justified by the lack of a cohesive national answer to school finance.”
“Probably a D. I would say that they are just ignoring the issue. The obviously aren’t paying enough attention to the education system.”
“A B. I think something is deadly wrong with education, but I can’t fault the Legislature, because there have been so many cuts nationally, which means the state suffers.”
“I would give our local senators and representatives an A+, but I would give the Republicans in western Kansas a D- to an F for blocking every reasonable finance proposal.”
