Proposals would change K-12 oversight

Today, Board Chair Isabel Muñoz-Colón released the following statement regarding a legislative proposal to change state education policy governance:

“Each session, the State Board of Education welcomes discussion of what K-12 governance structure best ensures a high-quality education system for all Washington students. While we are still reviewing SB 5673 and HB 1886, they appear to contemplate a significant rewrite of state education policy oversight. Major education policy responsibilities would be moved away from public discourse among the education advocates on the Board and placed with a single executive, the Superintendent of Public Instruction. Changes on the scale the bills propose certainly deserve a robust public discussion and we look forward to working with the sponsors and other legislators to achieve the best possible outcomes for all students.”
