Kansas Families for Education Endorsement
I think I’m solidifying my position as the Education candidate with today’s endorsement from Kansas Families for Education.
This is an interesting myth-busting fact from their website:
Kansas changed its school funding formula in 1992, shifting the bulk of the responsibility for education from local taxes to state taxes. This created an increase in state spending offset by a corresponding reduction in local spending. Unfortunately, many of the people who oppose support for public schools will often attempt to mislead the public by comparing recent state education spending to figures from 1990 or earlier.
