The Kansas Supreme Court must ultimately approve the amount that is spent on public education, so why does it matter whether the legislature needs to debate the issue. Just let the Supreme Court tell the amount the legislature needs to spend and all the legislature needs to do is rubber stamp the Supreme Courts requirements.
Unless our legislature supports a constitutional amendment to allow only our elected legislature to decide school finance then our elected representatives are irrelevant in any decision making regarding public school finance.
My question to the Kansas voters is "Why are we wasting taxpayer money debating an issue that the legislature will ultimately not decide anyway." As voters we need to take a stand and allow only our elected representatives to decide funding for public education. Decisions regarding public education should be made by "We The People" and not by black-robed judges who sit on a throne.
