Gov. Kathleen Sebelius today said she’s not interested in a proposal before the State Board of Education to use tax dollars to send students to private schools.
“What’s interesting to me is that in some ways the board is focusing on old news,” Sebelius said.
The issue of private school vouchers has been unsuccessfully pushed in the Legislature for more than a decade, she said.
“I’m hoping that what we can do is move forward, and look at what is going to make the most effective public school system possible … not only in Kansas but in the country,” Sebelius said.
Sounds like a good plan. Vouchers are a non-solution, especially for Kansas.
