POLL: Who has the best McCleary funding plan?

The Washington state Legislature must come up with a plan to amply fund K-12 education this year. But with multiple competing visions, can lawmakers find a way to compromise and meet the McCleary mandate in time? Why are school districts like Seattle planning budget cuts now? The new state schools superintendent and regional education leaders offer a progress report on the stalemate in Olympia and their reactions to proposals for fixing the public-education funding crisis.

On the show:
Rita Green, Education Chair, NAACP
Leslie Harris, V.P., Seattle School Board
Eden Mack, Legislative Chair, Seattle Council PTSA
Kim Mead, President, WA Education Association
Erin Okuno, Exec. Dir., Southeast Seattle Education Coalition
Chris Reykdal, Superintendent, Office of the Superintendent of Public Instruction
Summer Stinson, V.P., Washington's Paramount Duty
