TOPEKA (AP) — Gov. Sam Brownback has appointed Hoisington High School Principal Meg Wilson to the Student Performance and Efficiency Commission.
Wilson will join a select group of educators who will be part of a joint Kansas commission that will examine ways to make public schools more efficient. Wilson is running for a spot on the Kansas State Board of Education.
A spokesman for the state’s biggest teachers’ union says earlier appointments by a legislative leader show that the panel will have an anti-public schools agenda.
Brownback previously appointed superintendents Bev Mortimer of Concordia and Jim Hinson of Johnson County’s Shawnee Mission district.
