Latest Plan to Solve School Funding Recycled Idea

Dodge City, KS (westernkansasnews.com) Last week a coalition of school administrators proposed that in order to fully fund education in the state the legislature consider doing away with local taxes to fund education and instead impose one statewide tax.  USD 443 Superintendent Alan Cunningham of Dodge City knows this has been done before.

Just ahead of the State Supreme Court taking up the adequacy portion of school funding you are likely to hear a lot of ideas.

Cunningham needs to hear more before throwing his support behind such a plan.   and is not targeting a certain amount to solve his funding problems.

Since the crunch started here is what programs Dodge City trimmed.

The court will begin hearing oral arguments September 21st.
