Every child deserves a quality education, regardless of their background or zip code. At Bluestem Kansas, we are passionate about ensuring fair public education funding, strengthening public schools, and supporting our dedicated teachers and students. Join us in our mission to create a brighter future for Kansas through equitable access to high-quality public education.
Why High-Quality Public Education Matters:
Creating Bright Futures: Quality public education is the foundation for strong, thriving communities. It equips our children with the knowledge, skills, and opportunities they need to succeed in life. By investing in education, we invest in the well-being and prosperity of our entire state for generations.
Promoting Equal Opportunities for All Students: This year, a meager 64.7% of excess costs will be covered in special education, leaving a significant funding gap that must be filled from the general fund. Consequently, the limited resources and opportunities that could benefit the general population of students will be diverted and strained thin. It’s imperative that we fully fund education for all Kansas students so they have the opportunity to succeed.
Economic Growth: Strong public schools attract businesses, boost local economies, and enhance property values. By investing in education, we create a skilled workforce that drives innovation, entrepreneurship, and economic growth. Quality public education is an investment in Kansas' future prosperity.
