Fred Phelps and the School Board

That's what people outside Kansas think of when they think of Kansas at all.

Gov. Kathleen Sebelius, who calls the Kansas State Board of Education an embarrassment, wants to change all that. Sebelius told the Topeka Capital-Journal she will push in her second term for a constitutional amendment to shift the board's powers to the governor's office.

"I think we have a real institutional, structural problem in the state," Sebelius told The Topeka Capital-Journal editorial board. "The elected school board that we have in place doesn't function in this day and age. There's very little accountability."
