Email Gov. Inslee and the Legislature:

Gov. Jay Inslee has released his education budget proposal, which falls short of fully funding smaller class sizes as required by Initiative 1351 or funding the competitive professional compensation educators deserve. 

Gov. Inslee's budget provides NO increase in funding for K-12 educators' health care, although he does propose increasing health care funding for state employees, including legislators. The state needs to provide competitive professional pay if Washington truly wants all students to have caring, qualified and committed educators to guide their way.

If we’re serious about every child’s future, let’s get serious about fully funding education. This means funding basic education as required by the Supreme Court's McCleary decision, including both reducing K-12 class sizes and improving professional compensation for all educators. Use WEA's cyberlobby tool to quickly and easily email the governor and your three legislators. We've provided a sample letter, but feel free to edit it with your own comments.
