20 Pounds Of Headlines

(AP) – A panel of Kansas judges says it may be months before it rules on whether the state’s method of funding public schools is constitutional.

The three-judge panel heard final arguments Wednesday in Shawnee County District Court in the trial of a 2010 lawsuit challenging the system.

Attorneys for the plaintiff parents and school districts argue the state has failed to live up to its promises to increase K-12 funding as ordered by the Kansas Supreme Court in 2006. They say schools have had to make cuts that have hurt student achievement.
