This web site is about education policy in Kansas and to a lesser extent, in the United States generally. It may touch on higher education from time to time, but its focus is early childhood education through high school.
The author of the KansasEducation is John R. LaPlante, an education policy fellow with the Kansas Policy Institute. He has written about education policy since 2004. His views have been published by news outlets throughout Kansas, including the Dodge City Globe, Kansas City Star, Kansas Liberty, Salina Press, and Wichita Eagle.
The opinions expressed on this blog are his, which means they may not necessarily agree with those of the donors, trustees, or staff of the institute.
The Kansas Policy Institute, formerly known as the Flint Hills Center for Public Policy, is an independent non-profit organization that advocates for free-enterprise solutions to public problems, and the protection of personal freedom.
