It shall be the purpose of this study to determine trends in Supreme Court decisions affecting public education in Kansas. An attempt will be made to determine guiding principles that have guided the Supreme Court in their opinions on cases that have had an important bearing on the progress of education in the state of Kansas. If it is true that the Supreme Court has been liberal in its interpretation of laws as passed by our legislature then it may be said that the Supreme Court has been an aid to the progress of education in the State of Kansas. If there are definite principles discovered then it goes without saying that education might go forward and apply or utilize laws as soon as passed by the legislature without fear of interruption by an adverse opinion of the court.
