Public School funding is of special scrutiny this month, as Seattle voters head to the polls on February 9th to vote on two levies proposed by the Seattle Public Schools.

Our panel speakers will address the impact of the State Supreme Court McCleary decision and the current impasse with the state legislature on school district growth and funding, as well as teacher compensation and special educational services for students and families.

Our panel members are Joanna Cullen, an education chair for the League of Women Voters; Melissa Westbrook, writer/moderator for the Seattle Schools Community Forum; David Spring, teacher; Sue Peters, Vice President of the Seattle School Board; Jill Geary, new member of the Seattle School Board; and Alex Bond the spokesman for the School Bond Levies.
