Poll shows Davis surging, leads Brownback 51-41 percent

I'm waiting to see if Obama's name will be on the ballot in November instead of Davis's. Listening to the ads out so far you'd think it was Obama who was running for governor.

Brownback: State school aid has increased since 2011

"Also, the fact that districts spent that much doesn't mean that they needed that much."

Oh my God, you are truly delusional. Have you even been in a school building in the past 20 years or so? Do you know how many supplies that teachers pay for themselves? Do you know how much in fees parents pay because there's not enough money coming to districts from the State? Do you know of the cuts that have been made in districts in the past 5-7 years? Do they do all this just because they want to sit on money in the bank?

Brownback: State school aid has increased since 2011

If schools actually spent all the money they received then no one would get a paycheck for several months. There would be no food to start the school year with. They would close schools down before the end of the school year when the State is late or cuts back payments to districts.

Lawrence school board members defend recess

Taking recess away for misbehavior was used when I was in grade school about 40 years ago. It seemed to work pretty well then, but that was also a time when there was more support of teachers and administrators from parents than there is today.

Brownback: State school aid has increased since 2011

That's the way it was supposed to work back when it started. Only problem is that the state hasn't kept up with inflation and the changing times, so the LOB funds have had to go towards the essentials instead of the extras.

Why has it taken 2 lawsuits to get the state to increase funding or to make it equitable???

Kansas revenues in July beat expectations by $1.6M

Yeah, I find it amazing how Brownback is quick to accept all the credit for good, but has absolutely nothing to do with the bad.

Objections filed to Sen. Pat Roberts' candidacy

Pretty simple ruling. But we all know simple doesn't figure into politics.
