Garden City Telegram: Legislators turn to ALEC for poor plan on schools

Legislators turn to ALEC for poor plan on schools.

Another attempt to undermine public schools materialized last week in the Kansas Statehouse.

Faced with an order to come up with an estimated $129 million to remedy constitutional violations of school finance law identified by the Kansas Supreme Court, some lawmakers looked to take advantage of the situation.

A Republican-backed House bill was proof. It called for addressing the school funding requirement, but also included expansion of charter schools, overhaul of teacher licensing and tax breaks for private school scholarships.

The misguided proposal drew sharp criticism, and for good reason.
