On Tuesday, they'll have a chance to vote for some of the school board members making these decisions for the next four years. Four seats on the seven member board are contested. To hear more about the key issues facing the Shawnee Mission School District, KCUR's Sylvia Maria Gross sat down with Kristen Babcock, a staff writer for the Johnson County Sun, who covers education.
