KNEA has a daily report from the education lobbyist in Topeka called Under the Dome. They also review all of the various bills and committee actions here and also have copies of testimony.

Topeka Capital Journal provides information of rule changes and other activities. The paper has published an excellent series on some of the issues surrounding rural education and school finance.
