Cost of closing achievement gaps could be staggering

MEANWHILE Kansas citizens should organize to demand that we the Kansas taxpayers want our public education system back as it was prior to any budget cuts. Presented as a referendum subject to ballot approval on the November 2016 ballot.

Further the ballot should include reinstatement of all taxes prior to any budget cuts and payment of all back taxes that have accrued since 2007. This reimbursement will and or can be applied to wages of the teaching staff.

Further the reinstatement of any union rights should also declared on this document iF such applies.

Further any changes or funding to the public education system must be approved by voters of the state of Kansas no matter what. We The Kansas Taxpayers understand we are the owners of our public education system which therefore designates the Kansas Taxpayers as the final authority.

We The Kansas Taxpayers Accept Our Responsibility as the Final Authority for the next 500 years.

Kobach ordered to tell Kansas voters that their fall ballots will count

Kobach and Brownback will say screw the court order. United States of America Federal Laws and Regulations do not apply to the ALEC/DLC Nazi Dynasty.

WE ALEC politicians are not Americans therefore we can do as we please. Our higher order is the Hitler doctrine.

Brownback, advisers abandon report on Kansas economy

"Brownback, advisers abandon report on Kansas economy"

What has not been abandoned is the ALEC Agenda:

--- Bill Moyers - United States of ALEC
http://www.democracynow.org/2012/9/27...

--- People for The American Way - not the ALEC way
http://www.pfaw.org/rww-in-focus/alec...

--- American Legislative Exchange Council Boot Camp Team - the war against America http://www.motherjones.com/politics/2...

--- ALEC Teams Up With The Religious Right
http://www.salon.com/2015/07/31/secre...

It's getting closer and closer and closer to election time soooooooo many tools of deception I'm sure are in gear in order to get voters thinking that this administration is coming around.

No matter what rhetoric this group of anti Americans puts out to the media the ALEC/DLC agenda is still the objective.

Yes medicaid,public education,voter rights,social security,medicare,maybe a few universities,our environment etc etc etc are threatened UNLESS WE VOTERS WILL DEMAND a referendum on all matters for privatization are put on a ballot for the voters to decide

EVEN IT REQUIRES we have to to vote 20-50 more times before this ALEC administration
leaves office it will be worth every dime to save these highly prized government services.

Cost of closing achievement gaps could be staggering

Several countries adopted the original model of USA public education for their children because it is practical and works.

Now some of those folks are appalled that America is standing by not doing anything to stop destruction of such an effective concept.

One thing we have learned is that 20 years of reducing funding for public education has yet to prove that is the smart choice. 20 years of cutting the budget has not improved public education which is documented. Reinstate the taxes and find out where the public education tax dollars went.

All we have is conservative right wing politicians and their think tanks telling the taxpayers that our system is screwed up...... yet why do so many big spenders want to own a screwed up system? They want to own the trillions in tax dollars nothing else.

Cost of closing achievement gaps could be staggering

Governor Brownback has documented that defunding and dismantling public education is not a viable option. Pulling money out of the public education pie has had disastrous impacts on the one third so called under performing one third.

It seems the supreme court should demand an audit immediately and have the question as to where did the public education go get answered. Where is the money?

Has the Statehouse been negligent in their management of public school tax dollars? If so it seems charges should be filed accordingly.

The statehouse has been ignoring the courts for a few years. It's time to hold the statehouse accountable.

Brownback, advisers abandon report on Kansas economy

Reckless tax dollar spending and reckless preferential tax breaks have always been a failure however this is what conservatives have specialized in for the last 37 years.

Ohio voters/taxpayers voted through a referendum to maintain unions thus saving tons of jobs and their public education system in spite of ALEC Kasich the governor.

Union wages create other employment throughout an economy. This is practical thinking.

Trump names Kansas Gov. Brownback to Catholic advisory group

the majority of catholics support a woman's right to choose according to a radio interview not so long ago.

therefore Gov Brownback must be a christian fundamentalist a group very well known for waging war against women.
