TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — Kansans responded to Governor Sam Brownback's request for input on school finance with scores of ideas and observations, ranging from a substitute teacher who recommended dropping school sports to another person who floated a sales tax for education. The governor issued his call in August and accepted input through November to a special email address. The governor's office opened the emails to inspection yesterday (FRI). The Topeka Capital-Journal reports the missives came ahead of a legislative session at which lawmakers aim to craft a new school finance formula. In a statement, Brownback said educators, parents and students submitted quality proposals.
