Shortly after business hours close for the day, lawmakers will receive an important external study that could dictate how much money could go into public education.

Lawmakers contracted with an outside firm to study what level of funding is adequate for K-12 education. That number is significant because the Kansas Supreme Court tasked lawmakers with adding more money to public education without saying how much would satisfy the court. The high court has also said it wants changes in funding equity for students.

Once the report comes in, attorneys will sift through the data Thursday and brief lawmakers Friday. We'll have reaction from our local lawmakers on KVOE, and KVOE social media.
