City Inside/Out: Families and Ed. Levy and School Board Races 10/21/2011
This week on City Inside/Out, should voters renew the 7-year Families and Education levy this November? If approved, the measure will double the amount collected from homeowners to help close the achievement gap at Seattle public schools. Campaign co-chair Matt Griffin and opponent Paul Guppy of the Washington Policy Center debate about the new levy. Also, more than half of the Seattle school board is up for re-election and facing an uphill battle as the district tries to recover from its recent problems. A $1.8 million financial scandal and the ouster of Superintendent Maria Goodloe-Johnson have shaken public confidence in the leadership. Should the board incumbents be given a passing or failing grade? We hear from education activist Melissa Westbrook and Civic Alliance for a Sound Economy executive director George Allen about why they have come to opposite conclusions!
