Lawrence perspective on Senate proposals for funding Gannon equity remedy

From our friends at Educate Lawrence: recently “the Kansas Senate considers cutting $2 million dollars to the Lawrence school district. Apparently unwilling to invest significant new money in our public schools, the Kansas Senate considers¬†shuffling money within the overall education budget to meet the Kansas Supreme Court ruling on providing more equity between school districts. While Kansas has made the fourth-deepest cut in educational funding in the nation since the recession, the Kansas Senate now proposes to make further cuts in base per-pupil funding for virtual education, reducing funds to improve reading and math proficiency, reducing funds for at risk students, and reducing transportation funds. Please contact Senator Susan Wagle, the Senate President from Wichita Susan.Wagle@senate.ks.gov, that robbing Peter to pay Paul is unacceptable.”
