Kansas Governor: State Would Have to Raise Taxes if It Loses Supreme Court Case

Education Week reports:
Kansas Republican Gov. Sam Brownback, known for his famous 2012 experiment to slash away at taxes, said Friday the state would have to raise taxes if it loses a funding fight in the supreme court, according to the Wichita Eagle.

The state's supreme court heard oral arguments last week in the Gannon v. Kansas case, in which four of the state's poorest districts argue that the state doesn't adequately support their school systems. Based on several studies, the districts argue that they need $800 million to $900 million more from the state in order to provide students with the services they need
Public education = slavery.
