Comparison of Education Funding Proposals

Greetings fellow advocates of the Washington State PTA (WSPTA). As you know, the Senate Republicans announced their proposal for education funding last Friday, January 27with the full bill coming out on Saturday, January 28. Our outstanding lobbyist, Marie Sullivan, took the weekend to do an in-depth analysis and comparison of the Governor's budget proposal, and the Democrat, and Senate Republican's education funding proposals. 

As a non-partisan 501(c)3 non-profit, WSPTA is offering this analysis purely for informational purposes. As there is significant negotiation to occur in the coming weeks and months, we urge our members to take a measured approach to your advocacy and discussion. 

All the best, 
Duncan Taylor 
WSPTA Legislative Director


  1. Thank you! Can you remind us what the level of funding should be to amply fund basic education per student?
