Did you see the latest in the McCleary lawsuit that requires the state to fully fund K-12 schools? According to the News Tribune:
“The plaintiffs in a landmark education-funding case told the state Supreme Court Wednesday that state lawmakers should be held in contempt for not making enough progress toward a 2018 deadline.”
That’s no surprise. The plaintiffs are asking the court to do what the voters have already done: hold the Legislature in contempt.
It’s a wonder it’s taken so long to get to this point, considering the Democrats who have dominated Olympia for the last three decades have underfunded schools for so long to fund their special interest friends’ priorities instead. And every time the state has found itself short of money to do fund the morass that is state government, they’ve found the easiest cut to make is to our colleges. Middle class families can just absorb huge tuition hikes instead!
