Round-up: Most I-1351 jobs would not go to teachers, pre-K proposals square off on ballot

Most new jobs under I-1351 would not go to teachers: Initiative 1351 would lower class sizes in grades K-12 and add approximately 25,000 new jobs across the state. But only about 7,400 of those positions would go to classroom teachers, with the remainder reserved for principals, nurses, counselors and other support staff.

Pre-K proposals square off on November ballot: Seattle voters will choose between two early-learning measures this November. Proposition No. 1A is focused on improving the current preschool set-up, whereas Proposition No. 1B calls for a four-year property-tax levy to pay for a pilot program.

Maryland district sees gains after focus on ninth-graders (The Washington Post): Prince George’s County is focusing on the progress of its youngest high-school students.
