Recently, KPR aired a guest commentary that raised questions about ads appearing in newspapers across the state. Those ads -- paid for by Kansas Policy Institute -- suggested that too many Kansas high school students were falling behind in math and reading skills. Guest Commentator Tony Moss took the organization to task and claimed their ads were misleading. Today, we hear from the other side of that argument. Guest Commentator Dave Trabert (TRAW-burt) is president of Kansas Policy Institute and explains why he thinks the newspaper ads were right on target.
