Monday, December 1, there will be a discussion of state funding for public schools at district headquarters at 7 p.m. From the Seattle Council PTSA flyer:
Learn more about basic education, find ways for your voice to be heard and help ensure Olympia is listening to the needs of public schools in this state.
Representative Ross Hunter will review the progress of the Basic Education Finance Task Force, scheduled to release their recommendations in Dec. 2008.
WHY: Our Education finance system has not been overhauled in over thirty years!
Budgets and curriculum that were established in the 1970’s do not work in
today’s global economy and technological world. It is time for change.
The result of this task force’s efforts and the outcomes of this upcoming
Legislative session will determine whether public schools are on the right track to make changes to ensure that our kids graduate ready for university, college and work.
