City commissioner proposes tax increase to fund bicycle, sidewalk projects in 2015

Some of those baby boomers aren't physically capable of riding a bike around the city. I do not think the biking plan is being made with retirees or baby boomers in mind.

Brownback signs school finance, tenure-repeal bill

I'm sure the legislators did not bother to check.

That's an important point! You are missing it. A teacher is now muzzled, fearful for his or her job. And if a teacher is not being "tender" enough with a parent's child, then the parent can file a complaint. What can a teacher do when he or she is not treated "tender" enough? Not much any more.

Kansas teachers to take lessons from Statehouse back to classrooms

I hope these teachers will take back to their students the full story of the Kansas legislature in action. I hope they make the world ALEC and special interest groups a part of their lesson plans. Of course, now if someone doesn't like what they teach, they can be easily disposed of.

The head line is "You think you know what teachers do. Right? Wrong." Good headline for you to note, John Graham.

You are wrong about this. Negotiated agreements might have such information, but not contracts. Speak of something you know.

Time? Oh, one hour? If teachers went by their contracts, they'd be fired for not doing their jobs.

This conversation isn't really what the story is about. Teachers are not teaching just for money and definitely not for fame and glory. This story is about how legislators are not doing what the courts have mandated. They just need to fund schools. Teacher salaries are not a part of this and tenure definitely has no business being in discussions about finances.
