Kansas legislators tackle school funding question

the Kansas Senate early Friday morning approved a plan aimed at fixing an unconstitutional funding imbalance between rich and poor school districts. The Senate voted 23-17 to support a plan that gives local school districts the ability to expand their taxing authority with voter consent but also added controversial proposals promoting school choice and blocking spending on Common Core academic standards.
