TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) -- Kansas legislators are resuming discussions of education funding in the wake of a state Supreme Court decision that faulted the way certain funds are distributed to school districts.

The court on Friday ruled the state's funding of schools unconstitutional, and pointed to two specific areas related to aid for poor districts as needing immediate attention.

Legislators have until July 1 to fix the problems, which the state Department of Education said could cost as much as $129 million.

House and Senate Education Committee members scheduled a joint hearing Monday on funding to help students considered at risk of failure because of their families' low incomes.
