Statehouse Live: Brownback's budget director has recommended lower taxes, higher tuition, vouchers

"If my tax dollars are going to support private schools, there had better be State oversight and accountability." You are one heck of an optimist if you think any of your tax dollars are spent on things with oversight and accountability. But hey I guess there have to be some naive people out there for the corrupt goons to fool.

I understand all of this very well, I guess I just assumed that I didn't need to clarify all of these things on this board, I figured we were all education enough to understand the difference between state and federal government. I'm sorry I didn't clarify that the bailout was part of Obama and his administration's agenda, and was passed by the Congress and then signed by the President, what are we in 3rd grade where everything has to be spelled out? I guess I'm used to college where people actually debate issues not pick at words. None2 you sound like a smart person.

And I really don't think you are comprehending my point. What I'm saying is nobody was pointing out that they didn't like the vouchers regarding state budgets and such, people were crying foul saying that "private" schools should not receive public funding. That was all they were saying. Period. That is why I used the point of the bailout, which was public funding for private institutions. Following? I was pointing out that this is a fundamental issue here that is beyond state or federal lines, the issue is that people said public funding should not go to private institutions, and all I said was for people to stick to that fundamental distinction across party lines. End of story, no the private schools won't fail, no the economy won't tank without them, none of that. Just the ideology, that's it!

Go back to school and get a real education? The education I received at private school is the only reason I have a 3.5 GPA at KU and am graduating this spring with my BS in Economics. While many of my friends from Lawrence public schools are struggling through college talking about the lack of education they feel they received from Lawrence schools, and no they're not little Ku Kluxer Christians with a bias.

parrothead8- No I'm making a point that the government hardly distinguish's between private and public institutions when it comes to funding anymore. Does that make sense? Or is this getting above your head? And edjayhawk what are you talking about? I'm going to assume when you say a bailout for wealthy people you mean rich people sending kids to private schools..well that's the point, nice stereotyping but the point of vouchers is for people that want their kid to get a decent education but can't afford it to be able to.

A little Ku Kluxer school? I love your ignorance, actually I pity it but it's good for a laugh. And to edjayhawk that's the point, taxpayers didn't pay for my education my parents paid for my education at a private school and they paid taxes for public school that we didn't use. Thanks for proving my point!

Why is everybody so caught up in this anti-private school crap. I didn't see any of you on here angry when Obama's administration passed the largest bailout legislation in history. Who was the bailout for......let's all say it together, PRIVATE INDUSTRY. Oh no Obama wouldn't do something like that, only the evil conservative Brownback....get real people. If you don't like a policy, stick to it across party lines.

Well there's something about forcing kids to receive a liberal education on my tax dollars that doesn't sit too well with me. Let's have it one way or the other, you have everyone pay for their own school or the government gives you the option.

Kansasvoter, man you really suck at this. If the ease of reproducing a human life makes that life have no value then why would it be wrong for someone to murder someone else? Answer me that. If ease is what determines value then age should have nothing to do with it... at least that's what your argument implies. And just because a fetus may not possess personhood doesn't make it ok to kill. Are you also saying that we should be able to kill those in coma, or with long term brain damage, or disabled?

Kansas voter your argument is lame because it shows no real knowledge of the issue at hand. The ease of baby making has nothing to do with the value of life. And the issue is obviously not that simple. It's obviously not just a matter of personal preference. Once again, Lame.
