The attorney for a group of school districts says he will ask the Kansas Supreme Court to reopen a case over funding of the state's public schools.
Newton attorney John Robb said Wednesday that Schools for Fair Funding decided to reopen the case after the Wichita school district voted Monday to support the litigation.
In 2006, the court found the state's funding of public education was unconstitutional. Robb says he will ask the Supreme Court within 10 days to reopen the case.
Robb says the litigation now has the support of 55 districts representing 141,427 students.
