Inslee statement on Washington Supreme Court McCleary order

November 15, 2017

Story 

"I’m encouraged the court recognized the incredible progress we’ve made toward fully funding basic education. As the court noted, the plan the Legislature adopted, but for the timing, will meet constitutional requirements.

"I share the court’s disappointment that the Legislature did not meet its self-imposed 2018 deadline for fully funding basic education. The plan I put forward nearly a year ago would have done so. 

"I want to remind everyone that solving the McCleary decision is only one stop on our journey to give our students the education system they deserve."
