Ks Board And Lawmakers Disagree Over Commissioner Discipline

Updated:

    The Kansas State Board of Education has expressed its full support for a top schools official under fire from some lawmakers. 
    The board voted 9-1 Friday to advise Education Commissioner Randy Watson of its full support for Deputy Commissioner Dale Dennis. 
    Watson would have the final decision on whether to discipline Dennis over questions about how some school funding dollars were allocated.
    Kansas Senate President Susan Wagle is criticizing the State Board of Education for its decision.
     The Wichita Republican suggested Friday in a statement that the board sided with "bureaucrats" who've misspent millions of tax dollars. The board backed  Dennis in responding to questions about the distribution of transportation funds to school districts.
