A panel of Kansas lawmakers has been reviewing school spending and student performance. Some test scores have been flat or have dropped in recent years.
Republican Rep. Jerry Lunn says, at the same time, total education funding has increased.
“Does it make sense to then say ‘Well, we just need more money'? Because I think that’s the narrative that’s going to come out of this is, ‘We just need to spend more money.’ It’s not how much you spend, it’s how you spend it,” Lunn says.
