There’s a LOT of buzz about funding K-12 education in Washington State the last couple of years. We’ve seen the State raise property taxes to better fund schools…with over 50% of the entire state budget going to education. We’ve seen limits placed on local levy’s with a requirement to ONLY use the funds for “enrichment” programs. We’ve seen the legislature debate increasing the $1.50 levy limit to $2.50 because most of the extra funds from tax increases went to teachers and districts are now running deficits and need to lay teachers off. We now see special “capital levies” to fund technology. We see capital bonds to fund new schools and renovations/repairs. So what has all that money done for education? What have the increases been over time?
We came across a website that takes no positions on the value (or lack of) the tax changes and outcomes. Instead the website shares data. In this article we would like to introduce you to the site and share some examples of the data relative to districts in Southwest Washington State. Ready?
