A retired Wichita school administrator hopes to oust a Republican from the State Board of Education in Kansas' primary elections.

And in another state school board race Tuesday, Democrats were picking their nominee for a district covering northeast and north-central Kansas.

They were the only contested primary races for State Board of Education seats.

In the Wichita contest, incumbent Republican Walt Chappell faces Kathy Busch, a retired assistant superintendent and principal. No Democratic candidate is running.

In the other race, Usha Reddi, a Manhattan first-grade teacher, and Carol Viar, a Salina accountant and member of a local school board, are seeking the Democratic nomination. The winner faces former Republican House member Deena Horst, of Salina, in November.
