Meade, KS (westernkansasnews.com) The moment of decision is never easy.
Representative Ron Ryckman, Senior of Meade voted for the controversial education funding bill that passed. He says it was likely if the bill did not pass, the legislature would have fallen short of the July 1st deadline from the state Supreme Court.
If the way our schools are funded was not controversial enough, the stripping teachers of tenure took the battle to a whole new level. Before you jump to conclusions, Ryckman says the legislature did not totally do away with tenure.
For supporters of the bill this is a matter of trust that local school officials will do the right thing.
