Comparing Kansas 2017

The KASB Comparing Kansas report data provides information related to the Kansas State Board of Education’s Kansans Can outcomes and the “Rose Capacities” identified by the Kansas Supreme Court as a standard of constitutional funding and adopted as educational goals by the Kansas Legislature. It also allows Kansas educational performance, funding and other factors to be compared to other states. This is the second year KASB has produced this report using the same data elements and calculations.
