June 22- The state Supreme Court will hear arguments from attorneys in a school finance lawsuit on the 30th of August.

The court announced its plans today. Spokesman Ron Keefover said one hour is reserved for the arguments.

The lawsuit was filed in 1999 by parents and administrators in the Dodge City and Salina school districts. They claim the state spends too little on its schools, and distributes funds unfairly.

In December, Shawnee County District Judge Terry Bullock declared the state's 1992 school finance law constitutionally flawed. The state and the State Board of Education are appealing the ruling.
