TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) _ A trial over the way Kansas funds public schools continues Wednesday with testimony expected from current and former state officials about cuts in education spending.
The lawsuit by 54 school districts claims Kansas has been spending too little to satisfy the state constitution's requirement for providing a ``suitable'' education. The trial opened June 4 before a three-judge panel in Shawnee County District Court.
Lawyers for the state contend the Legislature has done the best it could to fund schools as state revenue declined during the recession that began in December 2007.
