OLYMPIA — The 2015 legislative session kicked off once again with Senate Republicans further demonstrating their contempt for the Washington State Supreme Court and our schools.

As Governor Inslee’s said yesterday “This isn't another plan that puts a Band-Aid on our budget problems. This plan is sustainable, responsible, and fair. It champions the values we care about most, from education to cleaner, healthier communities.”

Our kids deserve a quality education system.
That’s why Governor Inslee has made education the centerpiece of his budget.
Yesterday, the governor released details of his education plan. The governor’s plan invests $2.3 billion in education, including the largest investment ever in early education and the largest investment in basic education in two decades.
The plan reduces class sizes, implements full-day kindergarten statewide, and makes college more affordable.

The Michael Brown and Eric Garner decisions have shed a spotlight on the challenges our country face when it comes to the relationship between police and communities of color. We call for impartiality and accountability for law enforcement and applaud efforts by President Obama and Attorney General Eric Holder to provide guidance. Protests also play an important role in making sure these issues remain a part of the national conversation. Efforts by our leaders, together with grassroots activism, will help drive the change our country needs.
