Patchwork Plan

“Despite some patchwork progress that provides more money for schools, I still see no long-term plan," says Kansas Governor Kathleen Sebelius, "especially in funding public education for years to come. In the end, this bill fails Kansas children, fails their families, and fails our schools.

Gov. Sebelius will allow the funding bill to become law without her signature, and forward it to the Kansas Supreme Court, which has demanded that the legislature put forward an equitable school funding plan.

Maybe, if the right-wingers in the Kansas legislature weren't so busy drafting anti-evolution bills, anti-abortion legislation, and drafting laws that make it more difficult for families to make end of life decisions, they might have had time to draft a law that provides more than "patchwork progress" in funding for our children's education.
