(Olympia, WA)  --  Officials are estimating that 55-hundred people showed up at Washington's state capitol to urge lawmakers to put more funding into public education.  The "Spokesman-Review" reports parents, students, and school employees participated in yesterday's demonstration, marching around the Legislative Building while singing verses of "We Shall Overcome."  Governor Jay Inslee and legislative leaders say they're putting education funding at the top of their agendas for the current session.  The state Supreme Court says the state government must have a final plan in place by next year to adequately fund K-through-12 schools in Washington.
