TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) -- A special legislative committee is opening two days of hearings to review the Kansas school finance system and study the practices of neighboring states.

The meetings Wednesday and Thursday also include a discussion of staffing changes by school districts and how they compares to neighboring states. Policy analysts are expected to also discuss trends in school choice programs nationwide.

The committee is led by Republican Kasha Kelley, chairwoman of the House Education Committee, and Republican Sen. Steve Abrams, a former State Board of Education member.

Legislators will revisit school funding in 2014 after the Kansas Supreme Court issues its decision in an appeal of a lower court's ruling ordering the state to increase spending. The justices heard the arguments in October.
