"It is the paramount duty of the state to make ample provision for the education of all children residing within its borders, without distinction or preference on account of race, color, caste, or sex." -- Article IX, Section I, Washington State Constitution
Every child in our state must have access to a quality education. I will support protecting levy equalization funding and fight against unfunded mandates that harm our local districts. Those most important decisions addressing school districts should be made at the local level by parents and school board members.
