YAKIMA — Local schools have dreaded the budget ax for months. The Governor’s budget included threats of cutting school down to four days a week, ending all day kindergarten and losing teacher positions.
Now Action News has learned the State Supreme Court ruling will likely stop all of that. It said paying for public schools needs to be Washington’s top priority.
“The supreme court has told the legislators what they can’t do. They have to fully-fund. You can’t make any more cuts,” said Steve Myers, Educational Service District 105 Superintendent.
