TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — An attorney for Kansas parents and school districts suing the state over education funding says the state Supreme Court's ruling in the case is a victory for children.
Newton attorney John Robb said Friday that he's pleased with the high court's ruling. The justices ordered the Legislature to boost two kinds of aid to school districts by July 1.
It returned the case to Shawnee County District Court for more hearings on how much total aid the state must provide to ensure that all children have an adequate education.
Robb said the guidelines the Supreme Court set for reviewing total funding are in line with what the parents and school districts had suggested during the lower-court trial.
Gov. Sam Brownback and legislative leaders said they're reviewing the decision.
