(Olympia, WA)  --  Washington's superintendent of public instruction is suing seven school districts across the state over school-employee compensation.  Superintendent Randy Dorn says the districts are illegally using local property tax levies to supplement the salaries of school employees who should be paid out of the state budget.  Dorn told the Tacoma "News Tribune" he filed the lawsuit out of frustration that lawmakers aren't doing more to meet the state Supreme Court mandate to fully fund public education.  The state is named as a defendant in the suit, which also names school districts in Seattle, Spokane, Tacoma, Puyallup, Vancouver, Bellevue, and Everett.
