The History of Education In Kansas / KS at 150

Even before our country had a constitution, it had a means of funding schools. The Land Ordinance of 1785 set aside one section of each township to be used for education. As part of a series of commentaries called "Kansas at 150," we asked John Richard Schrock to examine the history of school funding as it applies to Kansas.

Commentator John Richard Schrock is a Professor at Emporia State University, where he trains future biology teachers.
