Governor Jay Inslee is finishing up a two-day education tour to talk funding with teachers across the state and turn up the pressure on lawmakers who still appear deadlocked on a statewide funding formula.
Inslee is asking teachers 'what would it mean to your school if the legislature provided ample resources?'
A state supreme court mandate requires lawmakers to approve a school-funding plan before they adjourn this year. They are currently in their second special session.
