I just read your comments in The Gardner News story (“Think Tank, education officials debate school testing, funding,” 4-25-12) where you said Kansas Policy Institute was “lying by omission.”
Anytime you would like to join me for a public discussion of these issues, I would be most happy to do so.  I am copying the chairs of House and Senate education committees in case they would like to invite us to jointly appear before their committees but I would also be happy to do so in other venues.  Perhaps The Gardner News would like to host a public discussion.  I’d even be willing to join you for a discussion at a KNEA meeting.
You name the time and place and I’ll be there.  But give me some advance notice so we can alert the media…I’m sure they would want to get it all on the record.
