Court Orders KS To Find Another $400M For School Funding

While state lawmakers, officials and educators are still reeling from today’s court ruling on Kansas’ latest school funding lawsuit, one thing is clear.

This fight isn’t even close to over.

A panel of three Shawnee County District Court judges ruled the state’s current school funding formula unconstitutional Friday, prompting praise and criticism from education officials and legislators. The panel, led by Judge Franklin Theis, ruled that state lawmakers cannot reduce the school funding rate below $4,492 per pupil. The current funding rate is $3,838 per pupil.
