KS pays their teachers 42nd worst out of 50. The new law requires no due process for termination. No Common Cause standards. Oklahoma or Kansas passed a law earlier to allow corporal punishment  of the kids up to and including visible bruising, welts, and broken skin. Home schooling will qualify the parents for tax credits, like a second job.

When I saw this on (Green Party Website who linked to Guardian), I immediately wondered whether or not it is true, and its significance.

If this isn't being misrepresented then:

I also hoped that Thom might talk about this if it is true (don't know how else to give a heads up).
