Kansas violating state constitution in school funding, court says

Kansas is violating the state constitution in its funding of public schools, a duty that is mandatory and not to be left to the whims of state legislators, the Kansas Supreme Court ruled on Friday. The court has given the Kansas legislature until July 1 to fully fund its obligations for state school funding for the next year. “This is a great win for Kansas kids,” said attorney John Robb, who represents the school districts, parents and students who brought the case. “It means that the constitution actually has meaning for kids in Kansas.” But while the court upheld part of a lower court finding in favor of a group of public school districts claiming the state should provide more money for education, the court also reversed part of that lower court ruling.
