(Olympia, WA)  --  Washington's superintendent of public instruction is proposing lengthening school days and extending the academic year in the future for students in K-through-8.  Superintendent Chris Reykdal [[ RIKE-doll ]] is proposing major changes in the educational experience for Washington public-school students, to be implemented in phases between this year and 2023 at a cost of four-billion dollars.  Reykdal wants the state to define basic education and decide how to fund teachers, phase out the standardized-test requirement for graduation, and require the teaching of dual languages starting in kindergarten.  The proposed extension of school days and the academic year for K-through-8 would start in 2021.
