Olympian today from WASA and from LEV. It is a message that I first heard about from Superintendent Dorn that attempts to make clear that the state is not fully funding basic education.
Today marks the 2/3 point on the school calendar — a symbolic date to remind us all that the state funds only 2/3 of the cost of running our schools. The state-funded part of the year may be done, but that doesn’t mean the Legislature has met its responsibility.
Our state constitution’s paramount duty is to fund K-12 education fully — not 2/3 — and for all
children, not just some.
