Roundup: Suburban districts face surging enrollments; Obama proposal would tax college savings

Suburban districts face surging enrollments: Seattle isn’t the only local school district dealing with overcrowding. Several suburban districts are also growing faster than the state average while struggling to pass bonds to pay for new schools.

Obama administration proposes taxing college savings accounts: A proposal laid out by President Obama in last week’s State of the Union address would end the tax-free status of college savings accounts and prepaid tuition plans. The director of Washington’s Guaranteed Education Tuition (GET) program said the plan would be “devastating” if it’s passed by Congress.
