Reorganization in Kansas

Bob Maile is out an superintendent of the Kansas school for the deaf. Even though he announced his retirement, there are no plans to replace him. In fact, the superintendent's position is being merged with the same one at the state's school for the blind. Madeline Burkindine will oversee both schools in the Kansas City area. The Kansas State Board of Education has approved the reorganization which will save the state nearly a quarter of a million dollars in the next year. Burkindine will get an assistant superintendent.
