Frank Morris of member station KCUR reports on a poor Kansas City school district that's suing a wealthy neighboring district over funding inequities. Local officials of the richer district want to raise additional money for their schools through a county sales tax, but parents in the poorer district say it's against a state law that was set up to maintain fair funding.
