The Brownback/Colyer ticket unveiled several education proposals today, to deal with what the ticket feels are unfair and burdensome regulations for schools to deal with.
From the release:
“To start, as part of our proposed Office of the Repealer, we will look at repealing a number of Kansas statutes still on the books from the 1963 unification of Kansas school districts. These statutes are the first step in streamlining our school finance system,” said Sherriene Jones-Sontag, campaign spokesperson.
Senators Brownback and Colyer are talking with Kansans about their Road Map for Kansas and sharing specific policy steps they will take to achieve the goals announced last week:
1) Increase in net personal income.
2) Increase in private sector employment.
3) Increase in the percentage of 4th graders reading at grade level.
4) Increase in the percentage of high school graduates who are college or career ready.
5) Decrease in the percentage of Kansas’ children who live in poverty
