It is the paramount duty of the state to make ample provision for the education of all children residing within its borders, without distinction or preference on account of race, color, caste, or sex.
– Washington State Constitution, Article IX, Section 1
Do you believe in the Constitution of Washington State?
Do you believe that all of our youth deserve a great education?
Do you believe that public schools are a essential service that must be fully funded, so that every child in our state has the opportunity to gain the skills and knowledge they need to contribute to the well being of our democratic society?
Then join us tomorrow as we rally in Olympia for our students and schools!
