It’s a new day in Kansas education

Kansas-Can-HERO-IMAGEWith the input of more than 2,000 Kansans, the Kansas State Board of Education has set a new Vision for Kansas education where “Kansas leads the world in the success of each student.”

Kansans are demanding higher standards in academic skills, as well as employability and citizenship skills, and the need to move away from a “one-size-fits-all” system that relies exclusively on state assessments from No Child Left Behind. This new vision for education calls for a more student-focused system that provides support and resources for individual success and will require everyone to work together to make it a reality.

Kansans have never backed down from a challenge and certainly not where our children are concerned.

With your support, Kansans Can!


The Educational Service Centers which make up the Kansas Association of Educational Service Agencies is very committed collectively and individually to doing whatever is within their power to achieve the KSBE goal of leading the world in the success of each student!

Dr. Randy Watson, Commissioner of Education shares his vision for the Kansas State Board of Education’s Kansans Can! goal in the following two videos. The third is the official KSDE video highlighting the Kansans Can initiative.
