Is there really a special place in heaven for "martyrs?" Then the corollary must also be true - there's a special place in hell for those who kill children.
We learn the fate of First Place charter school today since the Charter Commission rejected their corrective plan. Apparently, there will now be negotiations over what needs to be done to keep it open. It would seem that if this is happening this early on, that perhaps the school was opened too quickly.
Governor Inslee announced his plan for K-12 public education funding during the next legislative session. He gave the "what" - $2.3B - but not the "where" as in, where to get the money (that comes on Thursday). He wants:
- paying for full-day K (by 2016-2017)
- smaller class size in K-3 (by 2016-2017)
- increase basic education funding to cover school operations
- raises for teachers
- drop-out prevention for middle/high school
- job training and pre-apprenticeships at community colleges
For higher ed, he wants tuition to stay steady for at least two years and more money for college scholarships.
He did say he would not support repeal of 1351 but seems to only support it for K-3.
What's on your mind?
