Want to Understand School Finance? Become a Magician

If knowledge is power, school administrators have a lot of it. Given the complexity of school finance, it’s hard for the concerned citizen to understand what’s going on.

Mike Hall, a reporter for the Topeka Capital-Journal, wrote some articles on the finances of the local district. It’s fair to say that the experience gave him some headaches.

I have come to the conclusion that those who understand school finance in Kansas constitute a brotherhood and sisterhood equivalent to the alchemists of the middle ages. They speak to each other in a language that outsiders can only describe as “magic.”
