The Seattle Times editorial board’s second “Education Conversations” video features an interview with Mary Lindquist, president of the Washington Education Association.
In each interview for the series, we ask our guests three common questions:
What does education mean to you?
What does an ideal education system look like?
Name one reform Washington needs now.
The leader of the state’s most powerful teachers’ union argues public education is woefully underfunded, and that belief is confirmed by the state Supreme Court’s McCleary ruling. Lindquist is a major advocate for funding K-12 public schools before all other areas of education, including early learning and higher education.
Watch the conversation below.
