This week, a House committee could consider a bill to comply with a state Supreme Court ruling on education funding. That comes after the process got off to a rocky start last week.
The bill would increase money for certain education funds that are aimed at reducing disparities between districts.
But the bill includes other education policy changes, and the lawmaker who introduced it included an expansion of charter schools in the proposal.
That surprised House Speaker Ray Merrick, a Stilwell Republican, who said charter schools hadn't been part of the negotiations.
