Did Kansas Board Go Too Far?

"Some legislators wonder whether the State Board of Education went too far by naming as education commissioner Bob Corkins, a conservative political activist who's lobbied against increased school spending and has no professional education background," writes Carl Manning of the Associated Press.

"If there is a backlash to this, it most likely will be questioning anew whether the Board of Education should be disbanded and replaced by a secretary of education named by the governor and confirmed by the Senate," said Senate Majority Leader Derek Schmidt, R-Independence.

Senate Education Committee Chairwoman Jean Schodorf said it's beyond "likely."

"I promise you it will be back in the next session," said Schodorf, R-Wichita.
