Do you think the Kansas Supreme Court should shut down schools to force the Kansas Legislature to provide more funding for schools?

Poll results

Response Percent
Yes. I don’t think the Legislature will approve funding unless they’re forced into it.
 
24%
No. The court is already overstepping its authority in spelling out how much money should be appropriated for schools.
 
23%
No. Children should not be used as pawns in the power struggle between the Legislature and the Supreme Court.
 
19%
No. A constitutional amendment is needed to keep the courts from such actions in the future.
 
16%
Yes. But I don’t think it will be necessary - the Legislature will approve funding.
 
10%
I don’t care anymore - I’ve pulled my children out of public schools.
