After years of failing to fulfill that duty, the state Supreme Court, in its McCleary decision, called the Legislature to account and ordered us to fully fund K-12 education by 2018.

In Bellevue, we continue to robustly support and invest in our schools. It only seems reasonable to expect that our state legislators do the same.
