A Kansas official says school districts are concerned about more than just the resources needed to provide their students with a suitable education.

Deputy Education Commissioner Dan Neuenswander finished testifying Wednesday in the trial of a lawsuit over how Kansas funds its public schools. He was called by attorneys for the 54 school districts that are behind the litigation.

He said schools want to make sure students have the knowledge they need to be productive.

The lawsuit claims Kansas has been spending too little to satisfy the state constitution's requirement for providing a "suitable" education.

Lawyers for the state contend the Legislature has done the best it could to fund schools as state revenue declined during the recession that began in December 2007.
