Kansas Supreme Court Approves School Funding Fix

The Kansas Supreme Court has signed off on a new education funding law that boosts state aid to poor school districts.

The justices issued a brief order Tuesday saying that the Legislature “has currently satisfied” the court’s previous orders on education funding by approving the measure last week.

The decision ends a threat that the state’s public schools would be shut down after Thursday.

The court issued its three-page order a day after Republican Gov. Sam Brownback signed the school finance measure into law. Lawyers for the state and attorneys for four school districts suing the state submitted a joint statement saying that the measure complied with the court’s dictates.
