A task force formed to look for ways to increase efficiency in public schools met today (MON) for the first time. Governor Sam Brownback created the group. The task force is chaired by Ken Willard, a member of the Kansas Board of Education. He says the goal is not to look for ways to cut school funding.
“We want to determine if there are any efficiencies that can be found, to get a better bang for our buck, a better use of our dollars, for the most effective education possible for Kansas school children.”
Willard says he’d like to keep politics out of the process. He hopes to have recommendations ready for lawmakers when they return to the Statehouse in January.
