New public opinion survey shows stunning lack of understanding of K-12 finance - 7% of Kansans know how much is spent per-pupil.

"The number of Kansans who can correctly answer this question remains disturbingly low, but knowing how frequently funding is misrepresented by education officials and special interests, it's not surprising. Instead of trying to low-ball school funding to justify increased aid, the focus should be on improving outcomes."

Economic freedom EQUALS a better quality of life for all
Posted by James Franko on Monday, January 09, 2012

Okay, so this doesn't deal specifically with Kansas but it is a pretty good explanation of the work KPI does.

Around the world, the countries that are most economically free enjoy better health, longer life spans, a cleaner environment, and even their least well off populations have more money.  Why should it be any different in Kansas?

The answer - It wouldn't be any different!  The freer Kansans are to provide for themselves and their family, the better off the entire state will be.

Tip 'o the hat to www.EconomicFreedom.org for the video
