Issue Position: Rethinking How Our Schools Operate to Determine Whether we are Meeting the Individual Needs of Students

Issue Position

Location: Unknown

We need to ensure that Kansas children have access to quality preschools and all-day kindergarten. Additionally, we need to change school culture to ensure that a technical education is valued equally to the pursuit of a 4-year college degree. School counselors and social workers need to be able to focus on helping individual students explore their career paths and help them develop individual plans of study. When schools are reorganized around the student, and not the systems of education, there is better equity and will undoubtedly be better outcomes. And finally, Jim believes we need to see a stronger focus on business involvement in the classroom and student involvement in community service. Things such as internships and shadowing provide hands-on experience for students as they prepare to enter the workforce, and community service and civic engagement simply provide real-world skills that will make for more well-rounded students and adults.
