GOP worries Kansas can’t hit fairness target for school aid

KSAL StaffMarch 20, 2016

Republican lawmakers argue they may never be able to meet the Kansas Supreme Court’s demands for fairness in education funding.

They worry about creating yearly budget chaos as they constantly reshuffle dollars among local school districts.

The Senate could debate a bill this week that would redistribute a small part of the state’s annual aid to its 286 school districts to help the poorer ones at the expense of wealthier ones. It’s a response to a Supreme Court ruling last month that Kansas has shorted poor districts and schools must shut down in July unless lawmakers fix the problem.

GOP lawmakers said last week that they found it galling that the court rejected key parts of a law they enacted last year to make education funding more predictable year-to-year.
