No more excuses: Honor the Constitution and fund our schools!

The Constitution is clear: Fund our public schools!

No more excuses; no more delays; no more cuts. It’s time to fully fund public education. The Washington Supreme Court has ruled the state Legislature is not amply funding public education as mandated by the state Constitution. The Legislature convenes Jan. 9, and lawmakers already are talking about slashing another $500 million or more from our K-12 schools and higher education. They need to hear from us! Please take a moment to email your legislators and the governor and urge them to comply with the Supreme Court's decision. Explain to them how budget cuts hurt kids. It's a simple message: Our public schools and colleges can't take more cuts.
