  • Educators Fight for Students' Civil Rights at MLK Jr. Day Rally

    The upcoming 2017 Legislative Session marks the last legislative session before the McCleary deadline imposed by the Washington State Supreme Court. This means K-12 school funding is going to be THE issue this year. The State of Washington is about to run out the clock, and as the professionals closest to the students who are being shortchanged, it's our job to keep the pressure on.

    On January 16, 2017, join thousands of educators, parents, and kids for a historic Rally for Full Funding of Public Education on the Capitol Steps in Olympia. WEA-Cascade will be providing busses for our members, their family, and friends. Click the "Read More" link below ASAP to reserve your seat on the bus!

    The time is now. Public Education is a civil right for all students!

  • Let's Make Sure Gov. Inslee Fulfills The Promise Our Kids Deserve!

    Let's tell Governor Inslee we're tired of budgets that kick the can down the road! No More Delays! The time for full funding of our schools is NOW!

    We will be sending a petition to the Governor. When your building representative or a colleague asks you to sign, please add your signature and join with your colleagues to send a clear message to Governor Inslee.

    Governor Inslee, who just won re-election, will be releasing his state budget plan in December. The governor's budget will set the tone for the legislative budget plans that follow, and we need his budget to set a high bar.

    Billions in school funding are at stake. As professional educators, we know our state needs to invest in what will help kids the most - smaller class sizes in every grade and competitive pay for school employees.

    If you'd like to print a copy of the petition and gather additional signatures from family and friends on your own, please click on "Read More" below. Be sure to return any signatures you've gathered back to your building representative, in person, or to the WEA-Cascade Office by Friday, December 2nd.
