As reported the Kansas Liberty story Governor’s budget office recommends cuts in K-12 spending, K-12 spending in Kansas may be cut. As the Kansas budget is under extreme pressure, if the governor suggests cutting spending, the legislature is probably very happy to go along.
The irony is that since several school districts in Kansas, including USD 259, (Wichita public school district) recently passed bond issues, the state is required to pay a varying portion of each district’s bond retirement costs. If the state cuts other education spending, however, one of the campaign themes of the Wichita school bond issue will turn out to be only an illusion.
