(AP) The Kansas Board of Education has yanked the licenses of six teachers, including four convicted of sex crimes.

The Topeka Capital-Journal reports that Calvin J. Andrews of El Dorado lost his license Tuesday because he was convicted of one count of lewd and lascivious behavior. Jacob Douglas Lull of Cloud County was convicted of one count of indecent solicitation of a child. And Kurt M. Brundage and Cathleen M. Balman -- both of Sedgwick County -- had convictions for indecent liberties with a child.

Two other teachers with burglary and bribery convictions also had their licenses removed.

Some board members said more is needed. They said some county and district attorneys aren't reporting felony convictions monthly so the Department of Education can check them against employment rosters.
