Washington State Supreme Court has held lawmakers in contempt regarding funding public education. Many states should be held similarly, since all the Western States at the time of their establishment were given mandates to provide education in their Enabling Acts (created through the power of the federal government). The federal government gave lands to the fledgling states to help support that mandate. All but a handful of those states sold those lands and placed the proceeds in Trust Accounts. Washington State is one of those exceptions and continues to use the federally granted lands as a source of revenue. The actual “how” in doing so is a state matter up to the pro rata share the states are now responsible to fund education, separate and apart from the obvious federal dollars that flow to assist in funding education.
The power of app based education will be the gap filler for American families!
