Party Platform:


We believe that all children have a right to a quality education.

We recommend multiple metrics for high-stakes decisions in public education besides standardized testing in light of the following:

  • There is a local and national tendency to rush toward standardized testing for high stakes decisions in public education, despite mounting evidence that standardized tests penalize students who are second-language speakers and from lower socioeconomic groups;
  • The funds being spent to support these high-stakes standardized tests could more effectively go toward proven methods of effective learning, such as smaller class size.

We support:

  • Establishing facilities and programs that advance vocational and technical education;
  • Legislation for fully funding pre-school through grade 12 and technical education;
  • Legislation that substantially funds public colleges, universities, and technical schools;
  • Legislation that lowers the interest rate on student loans and finds ways to relieve the financial stress of college students and graduates burdened with huge student debt;
  • Legislation that will finance the McCleary decision to Washington State schools and fully fund
  • 149 basic education

Closed Captioning
Closed captioning provides a transcript for the audio track of a video presentation that is synchronized with the video and audio tracks. Captions are generally visually displayed over the video, which benefits people who are deaf and hard of hearing, and anyone who cannot hear the audio due to noisy environments. Most of our website’s video content includes automated captions. Learn how to turn captioning on and off in YouTube.
