More than half the Kansas Senate went back to school this fall to teach students about civics, government and public policy.

The exercise was part of an effort called America's Legislators Back to School, sponsored by the National Conference of State Legislators.

Senate Majority Leader Derek Schmidt of Independence says 22 of the 40 senators visited classrooms throughout Kansas during the fall, speaking to more than 2,700 students.

Schmidt says the students and senators benefited from the exchange, giving new perspectives on government to the young and new ideas on solving problems to the lawmakers.
