Preschool for all Seattle children

More education funding needed

So now Seattle is moving to provide more preschool education for all its 3- and 4-year-old residents. [“Editorial: Preschool investment,” Opinion, Aug. 26.]

Bravo! Apparently, older kids will arrive at school with backpacks filled. Bravo again!

Will great programs will greet them? Perhaps not so much. When will we accept the need for a dependable source of revenue so all children in this great, wealthy state have a fair chance?

Anyone out there for a progressive state income tax? Or are we satisfied with educational Balkanization?
