BEFTF Watching Party In My Hizzee, Yo.

Really interested to see what comes out of the Basic Ed Finance Task Force in these next two days. I've read through the draft recommendations, and it looks like the group lead by Rep. Ross Hunter is carrying the day, but we will see. The piece that could be the most profound change is to see what comes of the changes to collective bargaining that Dan Grimm has been championing.

This week it's the Basic Ed Finance report; next week it will be the Governor's budget proposal. The Christmas "holiday" would be a good time to watch the list of prefiled bills, and on January 12th the Legislature convenes. I'm also looking forward to seeing the various legislative previews come out of the professional organizations, namely Washington Association of School Administrators and the State School Director's Association.

It's going to be a hell of a session to watch. I wonder if Postman and Mullick have any regrets about bailing?
