Statement on McCleary order by State Board of Education Chair

State Board of Education Chair Isabel Muñoz-Colón issued the following statement on today’s order by the State Supreme Court in the McCleary case regarding Washington’s public school funding:

“I applaud the Supreme Court for continuing sanctions, and emphasizing the urgency of strengthened school funding.  The legal sanctions are meaningful, but the real urgency comes from a looming crisis: fewer and fewer of our best and brightest are choosing the teaching profession. Clearly, the state does not fund compensation or provide professional development at levels that will attract and retain the best educators for our next generation of students.”
