Lawsuit Seeks Extra $1.5 Billion for Kansas Public Schools

Because the holding pens don't yet take enough from the taxpayers


It could be another 90 days before a three-judge panel rules on the latest school funding lawsuit to hit Kansas courts, which seeks to award $1.5 billion to public schools.

The lawsuit accuses state legislators of violating the state constitution by failing to provide a "suitable" education to Kansas youths after curtailing education funds in 2008.
