Appeal in KS School Funding Lawsuit Almost Certain

A University of Kansas law professor says it’s almost a certainty that the recent court ruling on school funding will be appealed. Richard E. Levy (LEE-vee), professor of constitutional law, says Kansas Supreme Court justices could wait to see what action lawmakers take on the issue during the session before issuing a decision. Even so, he believes the Supreme Court will act quickly.
“There’s a recognition that the years that a student spends in school - once they’ve gone by they’re not recoverable. So a wasted year is a wasted year,” says Levy.

A district court ruled this week that the state is underfunding education in Kansas. Levy expects the state's highest court could rule on the issue later this year.
