Kansas Supreme Court Rules on Education Funding

Associated Press - May 27, 2016 5:25 pm

The Kansas Supreme Court is threatening again to close the state’s public schools and has rejected some education funding changes enacted by legislators earlier this year.

The court ruled Friday on a law that revised parts of the state’s funding formula but resulted in no change in total funds for most of the state’s 286 school districts.

The justices said legislators didn’t fully comply with an order it issued in February to make education funding fairer to poor school districts. The court said all schools must remain closed unless lawmakers fix the problems by June 30.

The court made the same threat in February, and the Republican-dominated Legislature passed the changes in hopes the court would relent.

Lawmakers were scheduled to meet Wednesday to formally adjourn their annual session.

It’s both comical and pathetic that the Governor and conservative republicans continue to rearrange deck chairs as their best effort response to keep the Titantic afloat.
