We spend $47,780 per year to keep 1 Kansas senator in the state legislature in Topeka, according to Answer.com.
We spend $35,632 per year to keep 1 inmate in Kansas prisons, according to PBS.
But our legislative leadership thinks that $4100 is too much money to spend per year to keep 1 Kansas school child educated. They are quick to point out the money crunch in the state, however, it was known we were heading in this direction in 2005 and nothing was done, plus there was no recession going on at that time. The legislature has put schools exactly where they wanted them, thanks for your help. I'm not sure we can stand much more of their priority spending.
