An editorial in the Parsons Sun notes that all five candidates for Kansas Education Commissioner have experience in education. Imagine that.
The current vacancy was created when former education commissioner Bob Corkins resigned late last year. The appointment of Corkins angered educators across the state, and rightfully so. At the time of his appointment Corkins had no education experience. Add to that the fact that he supported school vouchers and opposed large increases in education funding. Gee, it's shocking the state's educators didn't roll out the red carpet for this guy. All in all it was a monumental bust for the board.
