Video: WEA President Mary Lindquist challenges Washington to invest more in K-12 education

The Seattle Times editorial board’s second “Education Conversations” video features an interview with Mary Lindquist, president of the Washington Education Association.

In each interview for the series, we ask our guests three common questions:

  • What does education mean to you?
  • What does an ideal education system look like?
  • Name one reform Washington needs now.

The leader of the state’s most powerful teachers’ union argues public education is woefully underfunded, and that belief is confirmed by the state Supreme Court’s McCleary ruling. Lindquist is a major advocate for funding K-12 public schools before all other areas of education, including early learning and higher education.

Watch our conversation below.

“Education Conversations” is an occasional series from The Seattle Times editorial board, highlighting the latest thinking in education.

These short segments expand on our “3 to 23” education initiative, an ongoing effort to redefine the state’s duty to educate children between the ages of 3 and 23. Watch our first video with Highline School District Superintendent Susan Enfield.
