Gov. Sam Brownback is seeking mediation in a lawsuit over school funding.
A district court recently ruled that the state isn't meeting constitutional requirements and needs to increase funding for Kansas schools.
Brownback asked the state Attorney General to seek a hold on the ruling, so all parties involved have time to study solutions. The filings also request the court to appoint a mediator, in attempt to reach an agreement outside of courtroom.
The school funding lawsuit was filed on behalf of students, parents and four school districts.
