Webinar at 12:30 p.m. today on KASB's 2016 State Education Report Card

Join us for a webinar at 12:30 p.m. today on KASB’s 2016 State Education Report Card, which shows that while the state’s overall education rank remains high, it has slipped in key areas during a time period when other states have increased their school funding much more than Kansas.

“This report is an early warning that Kansans can’t be complacent about our historically high levels of achievement,” said KASB Associate Executive Director Mark Tallman. “If the state wishes to retain its high rank — and improve it to truly lead the world in the success of each student — policymakers and other leaders must acknowledge the role funding plays in educational achievement levels not only in Kansas but nationwide.”

To access the webinar please go to https://kasb.adobeconnect.com/e2hqi90i54t/event/registration.html. If you have participated before, look for the blue text stating “If you have registered with us before, please click here.” You will be taken to a new page. For those who cannot participate in the live webinar, it will be archived at kasb.org/legiswebinars

The Report Card, based on extensive research, shows how Kansas ranks against other states in student outcomes and funding. We believe the information in the Report Card will help education leaders, policymakers and the public better understand where Kansas public education is and what is needed to help each student succeed.

Tallman and Research Specialist Ted Carter will provide the report’s details and take questions.
