School districts suing the state of Kansas over education funding are telling the state Supreme Court that they want a lower court to continue handling their lawsuit.
Four districts asked the Supreme Court Tuesday to reject the state's request that the high court handle the lawsuit instead of a three-judge Shawnee County District Court panel.
The districts sued the state in 2010.
The lower-court panel ruled in December that the state is not adequately funding schools.
The state asked the panel to reconsider in January.
