Save public education: Act now to urge the state legislature to fully fund our schools!

Across Washington State, public schools are facing worsening budget crises. Several districts have already cut programs, laid off teachers, and even closed schools. Three districts are under binding conditions, a type of fiscal monitoring by the state. And cuts will be worsening in the next few years and beyond — unless the state legislature acts to fully fund our schools as the state constitution requires.

Our kids already struggled through a pandemic, and many are still catching up. Now the state legislature is deliberately and knowingly underfunding public education. State spending per pupil has actually gone down in recent years, when adjusted for inflation.

The 2024 legislative session will be a make-or-break moment for our public schools. We need to demand that our legislators make saving our public schools their number one priority.

Will you take a moment and write to your state legislators and urge them to step up and amply fund our public schools, as the state constitution requires, by using the $1.2 billion in excess revenue and eliminating the unconscionable cap on special education funding?
