Education Standards in Kansas – Americans for Prosperity
Kansas has adopted a new set of K-12 academic standards that takes decision-making authority away from teachers and parents and hands it to a far-away bureaucracy. The problem is that these one-size-fits all rules don’t give teachers much room to innovate in the classroom. Come to one of our expert panels to hear about the dangers of top-down, cookie-cutter standards that are affecting children all over America.

SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 16 – QUINTER & HAYS

Come hear from our panel of education experts and regular moms as they discuss real solutions in K-12 education from the bottom-up and the dangers of top-down, cookie-cutter standards that are affecting children all over America right now.

What do you know about College & Career Ready Standards? The problem is that these national standards create expectations for our teachers without equipping them to fulfill those expectations.
You know that there are issues in our public school system that are making it tougher for the next generation of Kansans to have more opportunity than ours.
