School Funding: A “Ceasefire”

The Lawrence Journal-World suggests that the year’s budget deal, approved by the Kansas Supreme Court, is merely a “ceasefire.”

When the Legislature meets in January, funding schools, which expends more than half the state budget, is expected to be a top issue again.

State Sen. Jean Kurtis Schodorf, R-Wichita, and chairwoman of the Senate Education Committee, said there had been rumblings to pare back the three-year plan, which she said she would oppose.

Others say that the plan might be revisited if tax receipts don’t match the promised spending.
