If you don’t have a seat at the table, bring your own

The fate of Kansas public education is in the crosshairs of political extremists. Their agenda includes striking down any efforts of diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) - incorrectly lumped under the conservative rallying cry of CRT - claiming a decline in school achievement scores to justify gutting public school funding in favor of private vouchers, and empowering angry parents to supervise teacher and administrative choices over curriculum and banned books.

Our Kids are COUNTING on US. Stop Extremists.

 

 

Stealth candidates aren’t new to Kansas politics.

The Real Government Overreach on COVID-19

Last week, Republican state legislators continued to misdirect what should be a war against COVID to a war on any government attempt to stop the spread of a deadly disease. The Legislative Coordinating Committee (LCC) is forming an 11-member special committee - the Special Committee on Government Overreach and Impact of COVID-19 Mandates - to investigate how Kansas can legally weaken or oppose federal and local mandates on vaccines and masks meant to keep employees, students, and vulnerable Kansans safe.

Be of Good Cheer: Remembering Dr. Robert Meneilly

Let it be made clear from the outset that this is a sermon on religion, not politics. What is good about religion is good for the republic, and good about a republic is good for religion. However, we believe fervently in the American way, which stands for the separation of religion and state. 

To love our neighbors as ourselves requires tolerance, but it also requires looking out for the best ultimate welfare of both state and church. It means being humble, not self-righteous.

– Dr. Robert Meneilly

It's Time We Come Together to Talk About Critical Race Theory

I am not an expert in Critical Race Theory (CRT), or the complex ways that race has impacted our history and communities. Instead, I consider myself an informed citizen who engages with difficult conversations by listening and seeking perspectives from those who are more knowledgeable than I am.
