In yet another editorial, the Times keeps up the pressure on lawmakers to get McCleary done. Now they are advocating for a mediator (someone like former Governor Christine Gregoire.)
There are not many things in public education that I find myself in agreement with the Seattle Times but this is one of them. Good for them.
I hope the Washington State Supreme Court brings the hammer down and the Legislature will then regret not getting this work done in a timely manner (or explaining, in a very clear fashion, how it would get done.)
As long as the Supreme Court doesn't tell the Legislature how to do the work, I think the Court will then be fulfilling its duty as a third branch of government for checks and balances.
