Initiative 1351: Thanks to voters

Thank you voters for listening to your teachers [“How to fund I-1351?” Opinion, Nov. 13]. Thank you for knowing that each minute per child gained is money in the bank of our future. Even though we haven’t figured out how to fund the class-size initiative, thank you for sending a message to the Legislature. They haven’t fully funded basic education in years, and are in contempt of court for it, but you have hope.

The research is there: Plenty of strategies work in American education. They are not glamorous or instant, however, so don’t make for good media coverage.

Thank you for listening to your heart, and using your head. You know what’s best for kids, our state and our country. Thank you for having our back this time. We won’t let you down.

Julia Vasiliauskas, science teacher, Duvall
