Gov. Sam Brownback is reaching out to education leaders to discuss the development of a new education funding strategy. He plans to host a press conference on the subject on Wednesday afternoon.
In a release from the governor's office, Brownback says he will be announcing a plan for developing a funding system that ensures high-quality education for Kansas students. So far, that plan is to engage the members of the education community, including Jim McNiece, the chairman of the Kansas State Board of Education, and Dr. Randall Watson, the Kansas Commissioner of Education.
