Kansans are too often given only a partial set of facts on school spending and student achievement. Parents are told that Kansas schools have very high achievement and while that is true for some students, state and national achievement data show that thousands of students are being left behind. Kansas kids and taxpayers pay for this poor narrative with large achievement gaps even though school funding continues to grow. While Kansans are being told that funding is being cut, it’s really setting another new record.
Our children deserve better than half-truths and a focus on institutions rather than each, individual student. And, Kansans should be trusted to make wise decisions about our children based on a complete picture of our educational outcomes and spending. We hope you find this informative and encourage your feedback.
