Senate Committee Considering Gov's Education Plan

Brownback’s proposal would simplify the formula and include some additional money aimed at helping rural school districts. But some opponents say the plan doesn’t do enough to reverse funding cuts from recent years. As KPR’s Stephen Koranda tells us, there could be a lot of work ahead on the bill.


Friday of this week is a deadline for most bills to pass at least one chamber of the Legislature or be lost for the session. Schodorf says the committee has requested an extension of the deadline for the school funding bill.
