WICHITA, Kan. - The Kansas Legislature did its part, in passing a school finance bill that addressed inequity in funding for poorer districts.
Governor Brownback says the bill would make a big impact, locally.
"Wichita is going to get a significant increase taking place in the main downtown Unified School District here," said Brownback. "There'll be different impacts, broader scale. Overall, this was a good move by the legislature and it addresses the court's order on equalization."
But, the governor must still sign the bill. He hasn't given any indications he will sign it, as is.
The governor is concerned about controversial sections that deal with teacher tenure which affect their rights to due process before they're let go.
