Kansas legislators will be cracking the books a bit harder starting next week as they begin a deeper review of Governor Sam Brownback's sweeping education proposal.
The Republican governor's plan calls for a departure in how school districts are funded and their source of new revenue. It also would make changes to the way technical education programs are taught and establishes a system for evaluating teachers.
The chairmen of the House and Senate education committees say while there is interest in taking action on some of the proposals, many of their colleagues are still wary of how the changes might impact individual school districts.
Brownback insists that legislators are welcome to add or subtract from his proposal.
