The Kansas Supreme Court ruled Monday that the nearly $300 million school funding increase approved this spring by the Legislature wasn't enough to meet adequacy and equity requirements of the Kansas Constitution.  (Orlin Wagner / Associated Press)

Inadequate and inequitable. That, once again, is the Kansas Supreme Court’s assessment of the state’s school funding formula. Celia Llopis-Jepsen, from the Kansas News Service, looked through yesterday’s (MON) 88-page decision in the Gannon case and shared some early takeaways with Kansas News Service editor Amy Jeffries.

That's Kansas News Service Reporter Celia Llopis-Jepsen. She spoke with editor Amy Jeffries about this latest chapter in the ongoing saga over school funding.
