Education definitely seems to be on the radar for both Mayor McGinn and the City Council. In today's PI, Joel Connelly reports:
"The Council's priority list contains one hint that Seattle taxpayers will be called upon once again to show their legendary generosity.
Burgess said the Council will soon begin consideration of renewing the city's Families and Education Levy almost a year earlier than in previous renewal cycles, due to low high school graduation rates.
"The fact is that more than one-third of our students are not graduating from high school and that failure has gone on for years: It's time we take bold steps to change our school results," Burgess said."
I think these people are getting serious about results. At this rate, the Board and Dr. Goodloe-Johnson might want to think about what life might be like if the City took over.
