Efficiency Group Considers KS Education Spending

Cash Flickr photo by Jeremy Yerse(Flickr Photo by Jeremy Yerse)A commission will be working over the coming months to look for possible ways Kansas schools could more efficiently use tax dollars. The group is made up of former lawmakers, education officials and members of advocacy groups like the Kansas Policy Institute. Those factions don’t always see eye-to-eye on education issues. The group elected former advertising executive and Wichita Chamber of Commerce Chairman Sam Williams to head the commission. He says he’ll be working to get everyone on the same page.

“When trust levels become high, then we can have meaningful conversations about how to get the very best, exceptional product we can possibly get,” says Williams.

The commission was formed as part of an education funding law passed earlier this year. The group will meet throughout the year and issue recommendations to the Legislature by early 2015.
