Washington Gov. Jay Inslee wants to raise taxes and funnel nearly $4 billion more into schools over the next two years

December 16, 2016View for printing

Gov. Jay Inslee wants the state to pay almost $4 billion more for public schools in the next two years and would raise some taxes to pay for it.

Most state residents, however, would see a drop in their property taxes.

In the opening salvo of next year's legislative battle over how much more to spend on schools and how to pay for it, Inslee unveiled his education budget Monday, proposing significant raises for teachers and other school staff as well as more training and assistance to educators and students.
