"Under the facts of this case, the district court panel did not apply the correct test to determine whether the State met its duty to provide adequacy in K-12 public education as required under Article 6 of the Kansas Constitution."

Last night, I collected news coverage anticipating today's ruling in a post you can access here.

Update: In early news coverage of today's ruling, The Associated Press reports that "Kansas high court: School funding unconstitutional."

Brad Cooper of The Kansas City Star has a news update headlined "Kansas Supreme Court: Change school aid formula and study whether to spend more."

And The Wichita Eagle reports that "Kansas Supreme Court finds inequities in school funding, sends case back to trial court."
