Kansans are understandably angry about the lack of a school funding plan and how Gov. Sam Brownback is shamefully reacting to that problem.
A constitutional crisis is looming in the Sunflower State. The governor and the Legislature have ignored the Kansas Supreme Court’s ruling that the K-12 schools in Johnson County and elsewhere are not properly funded. The court says the schools will have to close on June 30 without a responsible plan in place.
After the Legislature refused to resolve the issue Wednesday, Brownback defended the lack of action in a statement on Twitter.
Never miss a local story.
That brought out plenty of spirited responses, and almost every single one was negative.
As of Thursday, this crisis seemed like it was ready to play out for more days to come.
Instead of playing the blame game, Brownback needs to call a special session of the Legislature so the members can come up with a constitutional financing plan for K-12 schools.
