The Real Value of State-Supported Arts

State funding for the arts is under attack in Kansas. The governor has signed an executive order abolishing the Kansas Arts Commission, a state agency. Taking its place would be a private organization, which would be largely responsible for securing its own funding. Guest Commentator Barbara Yoder believes the governor's decision is a bad idea.

Guest Commentator Barbara Yoder is a writer and arts educator. She lives in Lawrence. The governor's order to eliminate the Kansas Arts Commission will take effect July 1st, unless the Kansas Legislature rejects the idea.
