School Funding Options Brewing
09/22/2010
 

Legislators, educators and politicians are

hitting the books to find new ways to fund Kansas schools.

An interim legislative committee heard two developing proposals

this week, both of which would make significant changes to public

education.

One would shift the share of funding schools to local districts

through property taxes. The plan is similar to one that was

introduced by House GOP leaders during the 2010 session.

The other would rethink how students are prepared for life after

high school.

Still other options are being developed by a working group of

superintendents and school board members.

All this takes place with the likelihood that a lawsuit

challenging the current finance scheme will be filed in the next 30

days.
