TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW) -- Governor Sam Brownback says he's pleased the Kansas Supreme Court has ordered mediation in a lawsuit over school funding.
The governor said yesterday he's also glad that the court stayed a lower-court order in the lawsuit directing legislators to increase spending on public schools.
A three-judge panel in Shawnee County ruled in January that the state wasn't meeting its obligation under the state constitution to suitably fund schools.
That panel also said Kansas would have to boost annual spending on schools by at least $440 million.
