How do new education standards impact teachers and kids?

October 15, 2013

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. Come hear from our panel of education experts as they discuss the impact of the new standards on studentsĀ and teachersĀ in Kansas.

The problem is that these top-down standards miss the mark. The real solution is to give educators and school systems the room they need to plan for their unique classrooms.

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.

Join us for a series of events around the state to hear our expert panel 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.
