Justice: Will Kansas Schools Litigation Ever End?

KSAL StaffOctober 8, 2013

A Kansas Supreme Court justice is asking whether legal battles over school funding will ever end if the high court sides with school districts that have sued the state to force higher spending.

Justice Eric Rosen said during a hearing Tuesday that he worries about what he called “constant litigation.”

The court heard arguments on the state’s appeal of a lower-court ruling that the state must boost its annual spending on public schools by at least $440 million a year.

Wichita attorney Alan Rupe spoke on behalf of the aggrieved school districts. Rosen asked him whether there’s an end in sight to litigation over school funding.

Rupe said the end comes when lawmakers provide adequate funding.

But Rosen said that’s a target that changes year to year.
