After nearly seven years on the Kansas State Board of Education, it is clear that the entrenched interests within our public school system are less interested in putting children first than they are in protecting their jobs and maintaining the status quo. With your help, we will make schools work well for every child, for every family, for every student who wants it. It will not be easy changing a seemingly intractable system, but with your help, we will make an excellent education available to all who want it. Go to Roberts-for-Education-dot-com.
