Can Washington Fund The Education System Our Kids Need?

This weekend, EOI Policy Director Marilyn Watkins gave a presentation at the Washington State PTA conference. The theme of the presentation was “Can we fund the education system our kids need: Public budgets and the public good”.

The following videos of Marilyn’s presentation, courtesy of PTA member (and EOI Board member) Matt Loschen, explains the trend of disinvestment in Washington’s educational system, and the impact on our current budget priorities – especially education.
