Lawmakers To Take Up Bill That Would Limit Teacher Bargaining
Kansas legislators are considering major changes in a state law governing contract negotiations between teachers and school districts. The state's largest teacher's union is calling it a "war" on educators.
Dozens took part in a lecture Wednesday on African-American newspapers and communities in Kansas at the Wichita Public Library downtown.
Historian Aleen Ratzlaff, professor of communications at Tabor College in Hillsboro, says Kansas has a rich history of newspapers that were owned and published by African-Americans and targeted to black readers.
"The emphasis has been on mainstream newspapers, but there were vital publications that were part of the African-American community as well as other ethic communities," he says.
