Steve Rose recounts Johnson County opposition to 1992 school funding bill. Former Johnson County Sun Publisher Steve Rose added some historical perspective to the current school funding debate in his Saturday column this weekend. Rose recalls the stringent opposition Johnson County legislators had to the 1992 bill, which set up a system that sent money from property-rich areas like Johnson County to less well off districts. He says that, unlike in 1992, Johnson County legislators and superintendents will have a voice in the creation of a new formula. [Johnson County will have school fund power — Kansas City Star]
