Civil and Human Rights Coalition Responds to Kansas Supreme Court Decision in School Funding Case

Wade Henderson, president and CEO of The Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights, released the statement below following the Kansas Supreme Court decision in Gannon v. the State of Kansas. A press call with further analysis from the plaintiffs’ counsel and civil rights and education advocates will take place at 12:30 CT/1:30 ET. Click here for more information about that call:
“Today’s ruling reaffirms the promise made in the case of Topeka’s Brown v. Board of Education decision and in the Kansas Constitution: that all students share equally in the benefits of a quality public education.


Until recently, Kansas had an adequate school funding formula, but that all changed when the state enacted a massive tax cut for the wealthy and passed those costs on to low-income students.
It’s now up to Governor Brownback and the legislature to respect the court’s mandate to fully and equitably fund Kansas schools.
Any attempts to strip the court of its authority or to further undercut the potential of Kansas’ youth would be an assault on public integrity and undermine the rule of law in the state.”
The Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights is a coalition charged by its diverse membership of more than 200 national organizations to promote and protect the rights of all persons in the United States. The Leadership Conference works toward an America as good as its ideals. For more information on The Leadership Conference and its 200-plus member organizations, visit www.civilrights.org.
