The union representing Kansas teachers says its members were prevented from offering their opinion on a bill that affects unions. The measure would scale back some of the mandatory bargaining rights of teachers. Currently, the negotiations process between the union and a school district includes lots of items, like how teachers are evaluated and the process for firing a teacher. This bill would limit what’s required to be negotiated to just a handful of items. KPR's Stephen Koranda has more.
