Attorneys hired by 54 Kansas school districts began arguing Monday that the Kansas Legislature must increase funding for the public schools to meet constitutional requirements.

When the same arguments were used before Judge Terry Bullock in 2006, he decided in favor of the school districts and his decision was upheld. As a result, the state increased school funding by almost $1 billion.

Since then, however, school funding has been slashed due to falling state revenues caused by the Great Recession.
