Final State Budget Increases K-12 funding, but Shortchanges Compensation and Class Size

Back to Blog

It took a record three special sessions for Washington legislators to write and pass a two-year state operating budget.

And while the budget includes more than $1 billion in new K-12 funding, it fails to fully fund K-12 public schools as required by the state Supreme Court’s McCleary decision. Later this year, the Washington Supreme Court will decide whether to sanction the Legislature, which is currently in contempt of court for failing to comply with the court’s funding orders.
