Kansas spends more money on education that any other item in the budget. And education funding could be the dominant issue when lawmakers convene the legislative session in January. A state court has already ordered lawmakers to spend more on education.

As KPR’s Stephen Koranda reports, all of this led lawmakers to spend two days last week studying up on school funding.
