Vote Count Education Policy Profile Series - July 2016

Kansas PTA has prepared another historical review of voting records on current Kansas legislators. We encourage public school parents and patrons to review this information, to help make informed votes in the August primary and November general elections.
This second Vote Count series includes over a dozen key public education policy bills since 2011 that reflect the scope of legislation in opposition to nearly all of Kansas PTA Legislative Priorities. Rather than chronological order, this profile begins with PTA Legislative Priority 1 and the block grant vote to repeal the 1992 school finance formula and ends with our Priority 10 and the vote to prohibit local schools boards from establishing their own weapons policies to keep schools safe. A green checkmark  indicates a vote in alignment with Kansas PTA’s pro-public education legislative platform and a red X indicates a vote against PTA pro-public education positionsHalf of the bills were worked through both chambers, but a number of critical single-chamber votes are included as well. 

The series is divided geographically, by Kansas PTA regions:
