WA Schools Chief Walks Out On Inslee's Speech

(Olympia, WA)  --  Governor Jay Inslee says the Washington Legislature is "on track" to getting the public-education funding issue resolved.  But state Superintendent of Public Instruction Randy Dorn doesn't agree, and made his feelings known during yesterday's State of the State address by walking out of the House chamber before Inslee began his speech.  Dorn told "The Olympian" that the governor and lawmakers aren't making adequate progress toward fully funding public schools.  The state is currently in contempt of court over the Legislature's failure to come up with a plan to meet the 2018 deadline set by the state Supreme Court.
