Wondering about 1098?
The LEV blog had an excellent article by Hannah Lidman about what I-0198 will do for education.
She answers these questions:
“What exactly does ‘education’ mean within the context of I-1098?
Where would the money go exactly?
Does it only go to K-12 and higher ed or does it cover early learning too?
I learned that I-728 is known to Washington state government as the "student achievement fund." And she has a put a listing of what I-728 money can be used for (it seems like a lot of things and that's probably why so little seems to have gone to actually reducing class size).
