Governor Colyer signed the Education bill this morning in front of the Seaman High School student body.

In his comments before the signing, he mentioned that Kansas has good schools.  “We support our schools because it is the right thing to do,” Colyer said.

Although he noted that there are still obstacles to overcome in getting the funding bill into law, he said, “Intent is what we are signing right now — to get money in the classroom.”

In his historical review, he said that the past 10 governors, five Democrats and five Republicans, have been under litigation over school finance.

“We need to just do it right and settle the problem.  This bill helps do that,” he concluded.

“Intent is what we are signing right now — to get money in the classroom.””

— Governor Jeff Colyer
