Kansas Educators React to Call for Special Session

The Kansas Association of School Boards is waiting to see what lawmakers will do.

Mark Tallman, an official with the Kansas Association of School Boards says now it's a waiting game to see what the Kansas Legislature will do once they are in special session. But, Tallamn says that at least some of the tension is eased among educators at the news that the Legislature is returning for a special session.

if lawmakers can’t find a way to properly fund the state’s school districts to the court's satisfaction by June 30, schools could be shut down. Dr. Martin Stessman, superintendent with the Shawnee Heights School District, says the waiting game is raising tensions among his faculty.
Governor Brownback says he favors providing a $38 million increase in state funding for poor Kansas school districts ahead of a special session of the Legislature.
