We envision every Kansan having the opportunities provided through personal freedom to achieve prosperity and overall well-being, and the State of Kansas being a model of economic freedom and student-focused education to be emulated across the country
Kansas Policy Institute is an independent think tank guided by the constitutional principles of limited government and personal freedom. We specialize in student-focused education and tax and fiscal policy at the state and local level, empowering citizens, legislators, and other government officials with objective research and creative ideas to promote a low-tax, pro-growth environment that preserves the ability of governments to provide high quality services.
