(Olympia, WA)  --  Two different public-education-funding plans are now up for debate in the Washington State Legislature, one approved by House Democrats and one previously approved by Senate Republicans.  Yesterday, the House passed legislation which includes increased spending on each student, more assistance for poor students, and higher salaries for beginning teachers.  Republicans are criticizing the plan, saying it doesn't specify what taxes would be raised to pay for all of its features.  Earlier this month, the Senate approved a plan that calls for replacing local school levies with a statewide uniform rate earmarked for schools.
