In this April 3, 2014 photo, Deputy Kansas Education Commissioner Dale Dennis watches a state House committee debate over a school funding plan at the Statehouse in Topeka, Kan. Dennis has been the state's leading expert for decades on the state's formulas for distributing its aid. A school funding plan recently enacted in Kansas is projected to provide $12 million less than previously thought for public school classrooms, and the top State Department of Education official publicly apologized Tuesday for "confusion" surrounding its estimates.
