In the richest country in the history of the world, there is no reason we should not have high-quality, free public education for all. Unfortunately, the federal and state governments are failing our children. As your councilmember, I will continue to speak out in favor of fully funding our schools and against the “corporate reform” agenda.
● Class size matters! Washington State should implement Initiative 1351, funded by ending the billions of dollars in corporate tax giveaways.
● Reject mayoral control over the school board - defend the democratic elections of our school board!
● Support teachers and students campaigning against high-stakes testing.
● Expand anti-bullying efforts and culturally relevant curriculum promoting LGBTQ equality, anti-racism, and anti-sexism.
