Lawrence school officials uncertain about impact of Westar rate proposal

He never said that was per month. I'm assuming that means over the course of the year. 2000 X 12 = 24000

I love reading the comments in the LJWorld. It always makes me laugh.

Heard on the Hill: KU Chick-Fil-A debate reaches Congress; local IIYM piano winner continues to excel; math prof takes on new administrative role

“Kicking out a private business that is operating legally on the grounds that its leader holds a particular set of religious and political beliefs different from yours or any other official would violate the University’s commitment to non-discrimination,” Huelskamp wrote.

Anyone else read that quote and chuckle? I know it's somewhat out of context but by simply replacing the words "private business" with "representative" that quote begins to sound like what happened in the primary.

Middle school principals reject ‘Tom Sawyer’ as single ‘core’ text for eighth-grade English

I'm not a scholar, but I think kids can read books like Tom Sawyer outside of school and have discussions with their parents and still learn something. I guess my point is that if a middle school student reads 8 books a year, that is still only 24 books over the 3 years they are at the middle school. Good books are going to get left out. It seems to me like their are thousands of good books, and they are trying to choose which ones they can teach to match curriculum the best. No matter what book they decide they can't teach as a core book, people would be upset because they are not teaching a classic. Just trying to keep it in perspective. Good day!!

Lawrence school board open to discussing Lawrence High-Free State boundary change

Conservative, while I agree with your premise, I'm not sure how you could do it fairly or if it even can be fair. In your proposal, the two schools that would make the most sense for Lawrence High would be Central and South. The two schools that would make the most sense for Free State would be Southwest and West. I think that would create even a bigger disparity financially between the two schools. After reading the article, I get the feeling that is the larger issue and why they are even considering this.

I'm not saying that there is a fair way to draw boundaries. I think regardless of how you do it, something is going to be unfair. Interested to hear your response.

Thanks
