What is the real state of Kansas education funding?

“This information should explain why school districts are experiencing budget ‘cuts’ even though funding has remained relatively ‘flat’ since 2009 in actual dollars, not adjusted for inflation. In terms of actual purchasing power, total funding per pupil has declined by over seven percent over the past five years. The portion of school districts budget that can actually be used for general educational purposes, like teacher and support staff salaries, has dropped over 11 percent in real terms.”
