Kansas Supreme Court Stays Lower Court's Order on School Aid

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — The Kansas Supreme Court has put on hold a lower court's order for the state to immediately increase aid to public schools by roughly $50 million. The high court issued a one-page order Tuesday, a day after a request from Attorney General Derek Schmidt. A three-judge panel in Shawnee County District Court last week invalidated key parts of a school funding law enacted by the Republican-dominated Legislature this year. The lower-court judges ordered Kansas to provide more money to districts using the state's previous school funding formula. The new school funding law scrapped the old per-student formula for distributing aid in favor of predictable grants for each district. The lower-court panel said the changes violated the state constitution by not providing equal educational opportunities for all students.
