Debating Education Funding In Kansas

Should the current funding model for Kansas schools be changed?  On this edition of Up to Date, we talk with three young people who debated that issue February 9 as part of Debate KC.

Guests:

  • Alex Trobaugh is a senior at Sumner Academy in Kansas City, Kansas.
  • Candace Villanueva is a graduate of Sumner Academy and currently works for Johnson County Community College.
  • Kayla Gilmore is a student at Emporia State University.
When I host Up To Date each morning at 9 a.m., my aim is to engage the community in conversations about the Kansas City area’s challenges, hopes and opportunities. I try to ask the questions that listeners want answered about the day’s most pressing issues and provide a place for residents to engage directly with newsmakers. My email is steve@kcur.org.
