Kansas Block Grant School Plan Headed to Court

(AP) – The plaintiffs in a school funding lawsuit have filed a motion to block the governor’s new school funding plan.

The motion was filed Thursday and calls on the court to bar the state from enacting the law overhauling the way the state distributes aid to schools. Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback signed the plan into law Wednesday. His office referred questions to the attorney general’s office.

A spokeswoman for the attorney general says the administration will defend the rewritten school finance law in the courts.

The three-judge panel has ruled that it may move to preserve status quo and will hear arguments for blocking the law May 7.

The law scraps the state’s school funding formula and gives each district a fixed amount of money for the next two years.
