Given a vision of Kansas’ future, complete with what Sam Brownback and his Legislature have done to it, Dorothy would likely choose to stay in Oz, scary monkeys and all.
The first Wizard of Oz said, “Pay no attention to that man behind the curtain.” Our present Wizard of Oz seems to live by that rule and makes no allowances for transparency in his or his administration’s actions.
Never miss a local story.
Parents of school-age children may as well get prepared to home-school. It looks like teachers will leave and the state won’t have money to continue to fund schools, and it will be up to you to educate those children. The state is robbing your children of their education.
