In past years, you either paid the players directly to shave points or hired the player's father or high school coach to recruit the star player. Now the pay-offs have gotten bigger and the schemes more sophisticated.

Some thing tells me that KU's current recruiting class will get a lot smaller real quick and our record of 14 straight Big 12 Conference championships will be broken and revoked. Unfortunately, big time recruiting in basketball is broken with all the AAU teams traveling all over the US to play games. That money has to come from some where.

When your education system is based totally on the amount of money spent, it simply proves that no one in the state of Kansas understands what creates a good education system. Cut the administrative bureaucracy and put the extra money in the classrooms. Too many non-teachers are working in the educational system.

Kansas teacher's pay is mid-20s out of 50 states. Education is more than money spent. Parents input and push is more important to their kids education than teachers. Most parents just don't want to make the effort. Too much money goes to administrative overhead than into the classrooms. Like every other form of government, cut the bureaucracy and put the money in the classroom.

This is why there are 30 million illegals in the USA. Politicians and judges keep setting them free instead deporting them. It's your tax money, folks, and also your jobs that you are giving away.

First, parents are the most important part of a student's education. Second, the hired consultants were from Texas and California. California has the most expensive and dysfunctional education system in the nation following Washington, DC. Texas with tons of illegal students and minorities is not much better than the California educational system. My suggestion is to find different consultants who have a realistic view of K through 12 education. Of course, if Kansas taxpayers want to pay the freight, go for it!

Over 500,000 individuals overstay their visas every year, yet administration after administration did nothing to punish these individuals who are breaking our immigration laws. America allows over 1 million LEGAL immigrants each and every year. We allow between 50,000 to 100,000 thousand refugees each and every year. Please don't feel sorry when one or two of the law breakers gets deported. This individual had 30 years to make himself legal and it wasn't important enough for him to be successful.

His brother or brother-in-law was legal. His wife was legal. He had 20 years to become legal. No American citizen should feel sorry for him because apparently his legal status wasn't important to him until it was too late.

No one should feel sorry for this individual. He's had 30 years to find a way to become legal and apparently, he's done very little in that area. This is what happens when administration after administration doesn't enforce immigration law. Then you have situations where someone who willingly violated the law becomes a big sob story for the media to cover. It's his fault and only his fault!

Until agriculture prices return to near-normal, the state of Kansas will be a difficult financial situation.
