New York Times Editorial Calls Out Gov. Brownback And Kansas Education Cuts!!!
East coast opinion makers are taking economic policy to task in flyover country . . .
New York Times: Shortchanging Kansas Schoolchildren
The money quote:
"In signing a five-year, $3.7 billion tax cut, Gov. Sam Brownback took the position that cutting taxes did more to create jobs than meeting per-student aid formulas. That dodgy rationale was argued in the State Supreme Court last week when a group of school districts and parents sued for their fair share of aid under the State Constitution’s “suitable provision” mandate. State spending on education has fallen an estimated 16.5 percent since 2008, including $500 million in cuts under the Brownback administration, resulting in teacher layoffs and larger class sizes."
It's not clear how much influence this EPIC editorial might have but it will provide more fodder to attack an increasingly unpopular Kansas politico.
