Lawrence superintendent signals 'grave concerns' about budget situation

Actually, I think many school teachers are underpaid. Effective teachers should be paid more, and could, if district administrators and school boards would fight for merit pay and scrap the one-size-fits-none method of paying teachers based mostly on time-in-position. Administrators and school boards could also make more money available for teacher pay by combining non-instruction functions across district lines.

There are lots of ways that administrators and school boards could reallocate money to Instruction and teacher pay. They have the money but are spending it elsewhere.

Districts are receiving the increased dollars promised by the Legislature. They approved an increase of $109 million in LOB equalization and $25 million in Capital Aid outlay....and that is exactly what is included in the block grants.

Topeka is choosing that scare tactic. They are getting a $5.2 million increase this year under the block grant. http://www.kansaspolicy.org/KPIBlog/1...

Districts are choosing to cash in unused snow days and positioning that as 'closing early' for political reasons. Funding is setting another new record this year. http://www.kansaspolicy.org/KPIBlog/1...

Mr. Doll should be honest about state funding and block grants. Funding is not being reduced...it is increasing statewide and for USD 497. http://www.kansaspolicy.org/KPIBlog/D...

Eudora School District to hold public forum on budget cuts tonight

I provided government documentation showing that the Eudora superintendent is consciously misleading people about school funding. Do you find anything factually inaccurate in my explanation?
