Wichita School Superintendent Martin Libhart: What’s Wrong With “Government Schools?”


In a recent email from Wichita School Interim Superintendent Martin Libhart to Wichita school employees, he took issue with those who, using his words, “openly refer to public education as ‘government schools.’”

It seems as though Mr. Libhart regards the term “government schools” as derogatory. Or at least as something that should be used only in secret, instead of “openly.”

Why, I wonder?

Would you please explain this, Superintendent Libhart?
