Motion Filed To Block New School Funding

Associated Press - March 26, 2015 3:08 pm

The plaintiffs in a school funding lawsuit have filed a motion to block the governor’s new school funding plan.

The motion was filed Thursday and calls on the court to bar the state from enacting the law overhauling the way the state distributes aid to schools. Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback signed the plan into law Wednesday. His office referred questions to the attorney general’s office, which didn’t immediately return phone or email messages from The Associated Press.

The three-judge panel assigned to case has ruled that it may take measures to preserve the status quo and will hear argument for blocking the law May 7.

The law scraps the state’s school funding formula and gives each district a fixed amount of money for the next two years.

We are spending more on education and still they want more Yet they spend unspecified amounts filing these law suits. There are a lot of places spending could be cut.

Since Warren Fair knows of “a lot of places” to reduce education funding, I wish to nominate him for a position on any school board that he might choose to serve. In that way, his secret can get out.

You need to be educating yourself on where we rank globally on the education scale. You’d be outraged if you realized how poorly OUR students are funded, taught, and rank compared to MOST all other civilized nations. We’re the laughing stock of the world with many things and one big thing is how we educate or to be more accurate how we don’t educate our young! Can’t you see they’re making a permanent working class poor? We can never be a strong nation with so many uneducated. But I know, as the government does… the uneducated don’t cause “trouble” for them because they’re not educated enough to know their own human rights!
