It is my privilege and honor to be the lead engineer on the Kansan Moonshot. Our State Board of Education has established the vision that Kansas Will Lead the World in the success of Each Student.

If we encompass most of what is described in the PDF document here — I Know How to Fix American Education — then we have a genuine shot at making schools work well for virtually every student who wants a quality education, regardless of how much money her folks make or what zip code in which he lives.
