Washington State Heading To Supreme Court Again

(Olympia, WA)  --  The State of Washington will again go before the state Supreme Court to argue that it's doing everything possible to work toward full funding of public education.  The Tacoma "News Tribune" says attorneys for the state will present those arguments beginning tomorrow, as lawyers for a coalition of parents, school districts, and education groups maintain that lawmakers still haven't done enough toward that end.  The case revolves around a 2012 high-court decision that mandated the state have a plan to fully fund public education in place by 2018.  The state was ruled in 2014 to be in contempt of court and has accrued fines of 100-thousand dollars a day over lawmakers' failure to produce a plan to meet the 2018 deadline.
