Northeast Johnson County legislators, advocates react to Gannon ruling that state school finance isn’t equitable

first_imgThe Kansas Supreme Court this morning issued a ruling in the Gannon education funding case finding that the state has failed to address the equity concerns the court found in previous rulings, and giving the legislature a June 30 deadline to meet its constitutional obligation to properly fund schools.The court found that the state had failed to cure inequities in school funding both in regards to capital outlay and to supplemental general state aid. The latter issue is connected to the Local Option Budgets that school districts can assess to support their state funding.The block grant system of funding schools, which replaced the state school finance formula, does not meet the equity standard for either capital outlay or supplemental aid. The school finance formula had provided a mechanism to provide less wealthy school districts in the state with additional funding to provide equity with wealthier districts.The Supreme Court largely supported the rulings of a district court that said the state has not cured “unconstitutional inequities” that were found in the Gannon ruling of 2014.“… while we do not desire to become a supervisor of the school finance system, neither do we abandon our duty to the people of Kansas under their constitution to review the legislature’s enactments and insure its compliance with its own duty under Article 6,” the court said in its ruling.The court stayed the mandates the lower court made regarding equity until June 30, effectively giving the legislature the rest of its current session to address the problem.The lower court panel had determined the state had complied with orders on the equity issue in 2014. But the panel “retracted its determination” after the 2015 legislature amended those funding formulas for fiscal year 2015 and and repealed the existing school funding system. “For the fiscal year 2015, the 2015 legislature’s amended aid formulas resulted in $54 million of reductions to these statutory entitlements,” the ruling said.The 2015 legislature then moved to the block grant system which locked districts in at the same amount they had been receiving on both capital outlay and supplemental aid.The state has widened the wealth-based disparity between districts with its recent changes, the court said.The ruling only affects the equity portion of the suit. The court is expected to rule on the question of whether the state is appropriating adequate funds later this year.You can read the full ruling here.Reactions from local legislators, schools and advocacy groupsRep. Barbara Bollier (R, Mission Hills): “I am not surprised by the ruling released the morning. The Kansas Supreme Court has found that our block grant system of funding is NOT equitable. I voted against these block grants knowing that they did not meet constitutional muster. The court says we must follow our constitution and have until June 30 to fix it. By giving us until June 30 and by staying the adequacy portion of the lawsuit, we have a great opportunity to shape a funding formula that constitutionally provides an excellent education for the students of Kansas. I look forward to input from my constituents on this matter.”Rep. Stephanie Clayton (R, Overland Park): “I look forward to us proceeding with caution as we figure out a way to best comply with the ruling. As always, my biggest concern is that we have dangerous- or unfriendly-to-public-education policies that would get added to the bill the legislature will create to comply with the ruling. That is something that we saw before in the spring of 2014 when we did an appropriations bill [to comply with an earlier ruling], most notably the tax credit program. That’s what I’m watching for and most worried about. People sometimes complain that the court is trying to tell us what to spend, but the court did not give us a number. They left the process up to us. We will get this done. We just need to watch it and make sure there isn’t any hostile policy inserted.”Rep. Jarrod Ousley (D, Merriam): “Today’s ruling confirmed what I believed to be true when the block grants came before the House. The legislation is unconstitutional. It was the reason I voted against the block grants. The court has granted us the opportunity to correct the situation and do what is right for our children and our state. I’m ready to roll my sleeves up and get to work. We could save ourselves a great deal of time and angst if we would simply reinstate the old formula and fund it.”Rep. Melissa Rooker (R, Fairway): “I have had very little time to read and review the decision in its entirety, however I have reviewed the summary judgment. It is very clear to me that the court has shown the utmost deference to the legislature’s constitutional responsibility to appropriate funds while simultaneously carrying out it’s own constitutional responsibility to review the constitutionality of the laws we make. It is high time that we in the legislature recognize that our responsibility is not discretionary when it comes to providing suitable funding for our public school system. The Supreme Court has given the legislature until June 30 to pass a school finance plan that meets the test of equity and adequacy in accordance with previous court rulings in the Gannon case. I will continue my work with a team of education stakeholders on a funding plan that fulfills our duty to the children of the state.”Sen. Kay Wolf (R, Prairie Village): “The Kansas Supreme Court has executed their duties accordingly by rendering an opinion on the constitutionality of the school finance block grant equity portion. Now it is up to us as the legislative body to abide by the decision and rectify the issue. ” Brandi Fisher, Executive Director, the MainStream Coalition: “The MainStream Coalition applauds the decision of the Kansas Supreme Court in upholding last summer’s ruling that the block grant funding scheme is inequitable. We are excited to see what the combination of election year accountability and this ruling has in store for public school funding as the Kansas Legislature grapples with a solution. We hope they will do the right thing, and reinvigorate our public schools with additional funds, ensuring that every Kansas child has the opportunity to succeed. This should not be a question of whether to finance education equitably, but rather of what failed revenue polices should be rolled back to accomplish it. We look forward to their work.”Judith Deedy, Game On for Kansas Schools: “We agree with the Supreme Court’s decision today. We believe the legislature made certain promises to the Court and the schools in response to the Supreme Court’s earlier decision and then backed away from those promises. We hope the legislature responds by restoring funding rather than by cutting additional funding. We also hope Kansans pay attention to the responses of their local legislators in terms of school funding, the role of the courts and judicial retention elections. Courts and justices shouldn’t be punished for ensuring the legislature upholds its responsibility to our schools and our children.”Neil Melton, Chair, Northeast Johnson County Conservatives: “Kansans will spend over $4 billion on K-12 education in 2016 for the first time ever. The Block Grant formula was never intended to be a long term funding solution, rather a time out, to give the legislature (the branch of government tasked with appropriating money), time to craft a new formula. The fact that the Kansas Supreme Court is using a formula that was eliminated through statute as a basis for the constitutionality of school funding demonstrates the activist reasoning used by this body.”Shawnee Mission School District: “Shawnee Mission School District leaders are reviewing the ruling released this morning by the Kansas Supreme Court in relation to the Gannon v. Kansas case. The district will reserve comment until a thorough understanding of the ruling has been determined. As officials evaluate implications regarding the opinion, we will continue to advocate for a funding solution that is financially sustainable, promotes greater local funding flexibility, and ensures educational excellence for all students in Kansas.”last_img read more

IHF World Youth Championship: Nigeria Succumb To Defeat Against Bahrain

first_imgNigeria faded after a strong start to fall to a 36-28 defeat against Bahrain on Tuesday at the IHF World Youth Championship holding in Macedonia. Bahrain were never behind in the whole match as Nigeria, making their debut in IHF World Youth Championship, kept in touch for majority of the encounter.The Africans however, fell off in the last quarter of the match as Bahrain increased their lead to 10 goals in the final moments (35:25) before two late Nigerian goals made the scoreline a little bit more respectable.Ibrahim Dikko was the one shining light for Nigeria’s cadet team and constantly troubled the opposition but  Mohamed Mohamed was in scintillating form for Bahrain and finished with 13 goals in the match to ensured that Asian side led 17-13 at half time.The second half carried on in much the same fashion with Bahrain holding Nigeria who had an almighty scare when the influential Dikko appeared to hurt his shoulder towards the end of the game, at arm’s length to emerge victorious at the Boris Trajkovski Arena, Skopje, Macedonia.Nigeria’s coach Emeka Nnamani excoriated his team’s performance and promised to ring the changes for the next match against hosts, Macedonia on Thursday.I am not satisfied with this match,” said Nnanami said. “We played bad in attack, plus they are good team; however it’s our first match and I am sure that we’ll do better.”RelatedIHF World Youth Championship: HFN President Ocheho Backs Nigeria to Conquer BahrainAugust 6, 2019In “Handball”IHF World Youth Championship: Hosts Macedonia Hand Nigeria Second Straight LossAugust 9, 2019In “Handball”IHF World Youth Championship: Yet Another Loss For Nigeria in MacedoniaAugust 13, 2019In “Handball”last_img read more

Boxing: Canelo Alvarez to potentially return to the ring on Dec.15

first_imgAdvertisement bx96NBA Finals | Brooklyn Vs7i5sWingsuit rodeo📽Sindre E6( IG: @_aubreyfisher @imraino ) cwfWould you ever consider trying this?😱372vx7Can your students do this? 🌚66prweRoller skating! Powered by Firework Canelo Alvarez is coming off of the biggest win of his boxing career against the feared middleweight kingpin Gennady Golovkin who he beat via majority decision last week in Las Vegas, Nevada. It was undoubtedly the biggest fight of the year.Advertisement Canelo Alvarez changed his strategy from the first fight, staying away from the ropes and remaining in the middle of the ring with Golovkin. Alvarez’s counterpunching and bodywork impressed the judges more than Golovkin’s relentless, punishing jab.Advertisement However, ESPN reports that Canelo Alvarez will be back in the ring on December 15 in Las Vegas or New York. According to Canelo’s promoter Oscar De La Hoya, David Lemieux, and Jermall Charlo are the front-runners as the potential opponent for December 15.“We will get on a call and discuss it with Team Canelo and decide if he will fight on Dec. 15. That’s the date he would fight, but we don’t know the opponent yet,” De La Hoya said.Advertisement “There are plenty of choices,” De La Hoya said. “Once I get the green light [from Alvarez on Thursday] when we talk to him I will get moving. We’re going to talk to our partners at AEG and the MGM [who jointly own T-Mobile Arena] and explore other possibilities like New York and The Garden. You have to fight at The Garden sometime in your career. It’s where all the greats have fought.”It’s also worth noting that Canelo’s contract with HBO has expired and Oscar is also looking for potential networks to take his superstar fighter too.“I strongly feel HBO is going to be more committed [to boxing] than ever. Now with AT&T and the merger, we had AT&T people at the fight for a reason. Never count out the 800-pound gorilla,” De La Hoya said. “Maybe they’ve been on hiatus for a bit, but it’s understandable. They’ve been going through this merger and there are changes. So it’s understandable. We’ve been patient. We’ve had other outlets to turn to where we can stay above water and keep our fighters active like with our fights on Facebook and ESPN. So we’re managing. HBO is our family and they’re always going to have first and last, and they’ve always been good to us.”With an impressive win over Gennady Golovkin, the stock of Canelo Alvarez as the biggest draw in boxing since Floyd Mayweather has only increased and without a doubt, he is the biggest star in world boxing.Also Read-Asian Games: Vinesh Phogat wins historic GOLD medal for India (VIDEO)  Advertisementlast_img read more
