Legislators to discuss competing visions for education funding
The League of Education Voters will host an education funding forum with Rep. Ross Hunter (D) and Sen. Steve Litzow (R) on their competing visions for education funding in Washington State.
The League of Education Voters will host an education funding forum on Tuesday, January 22, from 7-8:30pm at the King County Library Administrative Building with Representative Ross Hunter (D) and Senator Steve Litzow (R).
The forum will provide an opportunity to learn more about the competing visions for funding public education in Washington State. Funding our public education system is the central challenge in the 2013 legislative session and this forum will provide an insider’s view of the upcoming debate.
At this forum, participants will hear:
- A brief explanation of the current budget shortfall in this biennium
- A brief explanation of the costs of meeting McCleary by 2018.
- Contrasts in approaches from two legislative leaders to address the issue and meet the Supreme Court's mandate.
The forum is free. Please register at firstname.lastname@example.org.
