A Very Specialized Agenda

Steve Painter of the Wichita Eagle reports that, "Fresh from its controversial evolution decision, the Kansas State Board of Education is preparing to delve into the issue of diverting public money to private schools.

"Board members could decide next month whether to approve vouchers for at-risk and special-education students and make it easier to establish charter schools -- proposals supported by Education Commissioner Bob Corkins."

"This is a very specialized agenda by the commissioner of education," said Sen. Jean Schodorf, the Wichita Republican who leads the Senate Education Committee.

"This is why he was hired, to try to get kids to private and parochial schools and get public dollars to pay for it," she said.
