Several Kansas Supreme Court justices said Tuesday the state has broken its funding promises to public schools.
But they acknowledged that the current funding guidelines might not be feasible for the state, long-term.
The court will decide whether to uphold a lower-court's ruling from January. It ordered the state to increase school funding by at least $440 million a year.
A state law enacted in 2006 set the state's base funding for public schools at $4,492 per student, but the current base state funding is $3,838 per student, or nearly 15 percent less.
