City Inside/Out: Education Funding
City Inside/Out: Education Funding
It`s been a year since the state Supreme Court`s McCleary decision, which ruled the legislature is not fulfilling its paramount duty to fully fund K-12 education. How will legislators respond this session? Is there enough political will to find the extra $6 billion needed by 2018? Meet Stephanie McCleary, who has been thrust into the heart of the funding battle. Hear from state Superintendent of Public Instruction Randy Dorn and Senate Education Committee Chair Steve Litzow. In the studio, we are joined by attorney Tom Ahearne, who filed the landmark lawsuit on behalf of the McCleary family and the Network for Excellence in Washington Schools (NEWS). We also get perspective from House Appropriations Chair Rep. Ross Hunter and former legislator Skip Priest, who testified in the McCleary case.
