The State of Kansas defends itself in a case based on the Constitutional adequacy of its education funding as Maryland begins a review of its own education funding adequacy.
As reported by the Wichita Eagle,
Kansas could be required to spend $1 billion more in school funding if the Kansas Supreme Court rules in favor of the districts suing the state.
A court order of that magnitude would require some combination of tax increases and cuts in other state services.
The court will hear arguments Wednesday on whether school funding is adequate as required by the Kansas Constitution. A ruling is expected later.
