How’s the state spending your education money?

If you’re interested in government in Kansas, take a look at KanView, a site run by the Kansas Secretary of Education.

Drill down through an agency and you can see how it is spending your money. Take, for example, the Department of Education. It spent $79.94 last year on a subscription to Education Week, the newspaper of record for the education industry, and $65 for a subscription to the Chronicle of Higher Education.  Add up the payments to the Lawrence Journal-World and other publications, and you can see how much it spent on advertising.

You can also use it to find disbursements to school districts and others.  It does not appear that the budgets of actual school districts are included on the site.
