Seattle Schools Community Forum: Legislature Needs to Act Fast

Seattle Schools Community Forum: Legislature Needs to Act Fast:

Legislature Needs to Act Fast


Email your legislators right now by clicking here and ask them to fully fund public schools so they don’t lay off teachers this spring.


 Dear friend,


Please email your legislators right now and ask them to fully fund public schools so they don’t lay off teachers this spring.

Across the state, already-underfunded school districts are being told to prepare for a new round of budget cuts. You may have received letters or emails warning about the possibility of teacher layoffs or program closures.

Let's be clear: this is unacceptable. And it's unconstitutional.
Districts across the state face $500 million in cuts if the legislature does not fully fund our public schools by April. Those cuts must not happen. If they do, our schools will be hurt and our state will become even more inequitable. We can stop this and make sure every child gets a great public education — but we need to act fast.

Did you know the Governor and legislators hear very little about public education? It's true! It's really important to build up some heat on folks to get them motivated to effectively address Washington's school funding crisis.

Will you take a moment and tell Governor Inslee and your legislators to immediately and fully fund our public schools with new revenue — and stop these cuts?

Call the governor at (360) 902-4111 or email him here.

Find your legislator here or their contact information here.
