TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) -- A leading Kansas Democrat is criticizing efforts by Republican Gov. Sam Brownback to solicit anonymous tips about inefficient use by schools of their state funding.

House Minority Leader Paul Davis says a new website where people can offer tips and suggestions amounts to an online forum for criticizing schools. A task force on school efficiency appointed by Brownback launched the website this week.

Brownback spokeswoman Sherriene Jones-Sontag said the governor wants to make Kansas a leader in education and get more dollars into instruction.

Davis says the state should instead discuss innovative ways that schools have done more with less because of past reductions in base state aid. Davis also said the state should celebrate schools by restoring some of the lost aid.
