New York Times editorial agrees Kansas should increase school funding

Moderate Republicans and Democrats have said that it was a cruel juxtaposition to slash state revenue by hundreds of millions of dollars at a time when education is underfunded by more than $400 million.
Alan L. Rupe, a lawyer for the school districts and students seeking increased funding, criticized the state leaders for passing a tax cut, ‘and then stand here to plead they cannot increase funding to schools.’”
