Is Governor Christine Gregoire’s proposed legislation strong enough to get Washington in the game to win $250 million in federal Race to the Top funds?  An important question to ponder…

If you think bolder steps need to be taken on behalf of Washington’s 1 million k-12 public school students then speak up and testify at one of next week’s crucial hearings.

Monday January 25th, 1:30pm

Senate Early Learning and K-12 Education Committee

Senate Hearing Room 1

Public Hearing on education reform (Z-1087.3) – this is the Governor’s Race to the Top legislation

Wednesday January 27, 1:30pm

House Education Committee

House Hearing Room A

Hearing on 3 bills – basically the Governor’s legislation divided into three bill; no major changes from her legislation.

Hope to see you there!
