Two days after a school efficiency task force picked by Governor Sam Brownback met, another group created by the Kansas Association of School Boards is emerging.
Brownback's group was appointed in September with the goal of identifying ways to get more education dollars into the classroom. The group includes numerous certified public accountants and the governor's budget director.
Democrats and school advocates criticized Brownback for not including educators on his task force.
The school board association announced Wednesday that it was forming a group that would include superintendents and other school leaders. That group will gather information and respond to issues raised by the governor's task force.
The KASB group will meet Oct. 19 and Nov. 2, while the governor's task force is scheduled to meet Nov. 9.
