Kansas Supreme Court: Change school aid formula and study whether to spend more

The high court ruled that cuts in education funding since 2010 led to an unconstitutionally imbalanced playing field between rich and poor schools. Its decision means lawmakers by July 1 must close the gap or a panel of three district court judges will decide how to do it for them. On a grander scale, the court put off a decision on whether Kansas was spending enough on schools to meet its constitutional obligation to suitably finance public education.
