Today’s ruling confirms Governor Inslee’s failure to lead on one of the most important decisions facing the state. Governor Inslee promised to fix the state’s education funding with “no excuses” when he ran four years ago. Four years later, he still has no plan and his failure has now cost the state $42 million in fines. Unfortunately, he's provided nothing but excuses.
As Governor, I will work with Republicans and Democrats in Olympia to get this problem solved and make sure that every child has access to quality education in Washington.
