So I am no longer working in . And my discussion with my former district’s HR dept. just reaffirms my decision. I am now on my 3rd or 4th HR person in charge of my file. But wait, you are thinking aren’t you a former employee? /1

Thankful to hear that the last of the districts in my home county are finally getting to go back to school. Endless respect for all of these wonderful Washington teachers fighting for education when I know all they wanted to do was start their school year!!

Rolfes wants to look at specific districts (like Tacoma) where boost in state funding may not outweigh cut in local levy. Braun: "Any raising of local levies is enormously risky...it's a bad idea. I'd much rather fight for additional state funding"

Funding for public education in our state should include substantial resources focused on addressing and ultimately eliminating the gaps in academic outcomes prevalent in Washington, like the test scores of students learning English.

With just one remaining school walkout in Washington, how will new teacher contracts affect school-district finances? "A lot of school districts have settled knowing they’re going to be in debt.”

It's disingenuous when school boards & admin say it's time to "heal" after a teacher strike when they refuse to accept responsibility for making really bad decisions. Next year's board elections should be fun.

LEV promotes project-based, and hands-on learning. Check out how this UW program caught these Washington students, “at an age when they often begin to lose interest in math and science, and showed them that these are subjects they can enjoy.”
