Connie Morris, who was soundly defeated in her re-election bid to the Kansas State Board of Education, is taking two taxpayer-financed trips before she leaves office. Talk about galling — especially after Morris tried last year to bill taxpayers nearly $3,600 for a conference she attended at a Miami resort. And what’s the great educational purpose of these conferences? One that she will attend next month, the Associated Press reported, features speakers on subjects such as how international baccalaureate programs undermine U.S. citizenship; how mental health screening affects gun ownership rights; and minority and low-income families as psychiatric guinea pigs.
