I have been in the schools.
1st thing is the wasted billions $$$ on a building.
2nd They need to do like was done in years past, that is seperate those students who disrupt the class.
3rd Hold parents accountable for the kids actions !!!!!

Too many mamby pamby control freaks running the schools. Bring back the Board Of Education and use it !!!!

Put the 10 comandments back at every school entrance where they should be.

Before you go their. I dont even believe in god, but those comandments are good rules to follow in life.

So, your telling me the state doesnt give school districts money for new schools ?
You are the one who needs to learn how things work.
New schools in over 97 cities in the past 3 years. State funding to operate those schools for the first 2 years to the tune of 1/2 million plus , per school.
Class sizes as low as 9 pupils in over 3/4 of those schools.

Too bad those teachers didnt have all that wasted money to spend on teaching and updating computers and equipment that is related to teaching.
Those fancy smancy new buildings dont teach a thing, they just suck the towns dry of money.

Kansas revenues start to swing upward

Raising what they take from us does no good, it just sends us back 3 steps for every step we went forward.
Can you , wait, could you imagine ever, we would be paying 10% sales tax in Kansas ?

This is what Texas does and has no personal property tax and they are doing good in this downtime.
We pay extream personal property and other taxes and huge sales tax and our leaders cant seem to keep us afloat.

Sales are down or at a stand still from 2008 now ( i know i own a business )
There are quite a few business closing now and before Jan 1 2011 in this area.
I drove by a business in Eudora , the Flower Shop, it is out of business now.
A few businesses have anounced it and i know another 5 that are keeping it under wraps until later this and next month. This is going to just keep the trend of dropping sales tax revenues sinking.

Nope, but it was a negative that is helping the downward trend.
It also has killed many many businesses that were taking in tax revenue and now are not !!!!!
By making it a choice of each business, you leave the revenue intake the same and people will get to know where to shop and where not to shop, very very simple for the human brain to figure out.
With he ban being enforced, you drive ALL your out of state business out, thus dropping spending in Kansas and dropping tax revenue intake to run Kansas.

What is 1% of 5.2 billion ? Just about the diffrence from last year to nows numbers. Telling us the tax is covering the decrease in sales revenues.

If you looked at growth numbers as you point out, the actual numbers point toward a downward trend in spending still.

The above tells us we have less money in our pockets now, but the state has more tax revenues to waste on not needed new schools, study sessions on a road to noplace and so on.

Too bad they dont put so much into teaching anymore. All they care about is only 12 kids to a classroom and a billion dollar school building.

Just think of the billions and billions they would have to teach with if they wouldnt waste it all on those shiny new schools with dwendeling numbers in student populations.

I hope the judge who works this case can find it in his heart to set the teachers straight and throw this suit out. And to top it off fire 80% of them to get teachers in place to teach , not bitch.

If you do the math, that 1% is the only thing that made the total number higher. This DOES NOT spell the end, it only says we are paying more taxes and has nothing to do with any recovery happening.
I gues if your a state leader that is great news , because it gives you more money to waste.

Untill they can get unemployment back down to less than 5% and lower taxes , the end is not in sight !!!!!

If Sam B will repeal the smoking ban, we could see tax revenues jump up huge amounts very rapidly and it will give jobs back to those who have been let go due to businesses loosing customers.
