WA Supreme Court Asked To Consider Closing Schools

(Olympia, WA)  --  Washington's superintendent of public instruction says closing down all public schools should be considered if the Legislature doesn't come through with a plan to fully fund public education.  Superintendent Randy Dorn made the remarks following an hour-long state Supreme Court hearing on the McCleary case yesterday, saying the high court should make closure an option.  State lawmakers were declared in contempt of the Supreme Court two years ago and have racked up more than 39-million-dollars in fines since then.  The court will likely next decide whether to increase penalties or wait to see what the Legislature and the governor will do next year.
