Awbrey Organized Anti-Education Tax Revolt in Vermont

When he worked as an editorial page writer for the Burlington (Vermont) Free Press, David Awbrey, the newly appointed spokesperson for the Kansas State Department of Education, penned an editorial titled, β€œTax Revolt,” that appeared two days before Vermont's annual Town Meeting Day when most communities vote on their school budgets.

"We urged citizens to vote against their budgets, in hope that the legislature would respond to such a show of public outrage," writes Awbrey in the Education Writer. "On Town Meeting Day, a record number of towns rejected their school budgets. The Burlington Free Press was widely credited β€” or blamed β€” for the result."
