The following is an excerpt from the WSDC 2022 Platform, approved June 25, 2022:
“It is the paramount duty of the state to make ample provisions for the education of all children.” — The Washington State Constitution
The backbone of our democracy is a free, universal public-school system, designed to develop lifelong learners prepared to think critically and participate in our civic society. The growing demands of globalization, technology, and cross-cultural understanding require a well-funded public education system that offers the challenges and opportunities to develop the full potential of all students. We recognize the direct connection between individual educational attainment and the long-term economic sustainability of our society.
