(Reuters) - The Kansas Supreme Court on Monday ruled that the state underfunds public education under a plan enacted this summer that increased money for K-12 schools.

The high court set a June 30, 2018, deadline for Kansas to adopt a funding plan that meets an adequacy requirement in the state constitution.
