Be Inspired by these Trailblazing Middle Schoolers

The midterm dust is settling and we're ready to get down to work with new and returning elected officials across the state to improve education for Washington students. Here at League of Education Voters we're fine-tuning our legislative priorities for 2019, but you can count on us to advocate for special education funding and for comprehensive supports in every classroom. There's a lot of work ahead, which is why we're so grateful to have you with us in this work.
