Wealthy School Districts at Center of Kansas Funding Dispute

KSAL StaffJune 12, 2016

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) – Kansas Republicans returning to the Statehouse June 23 for a special session to discuss school funding say they plan to quickly resolve the issue to avoid school closures on July 1.

The state’s Supreme Court ruled last month that the Legislature’s proposal for distributing more than $4 billion a year in aid to its 286 school districts is unfair to poorer school districts and gave the lawmakers until June 30 to find a solution.

The special session is likely to focus on whether wealthy school districts lose part of their aid to poorer ones. GOP lawmakers have expressed little interest in broadening the debate to include issues such as academic standards.
