New funding priorities, special education and a pop quiz

The new school year is well underway, and at League of Education Voters, we want to know if you're up for a challenge. We've taken real questions from Washington state's sixth-grade curriculum to test your knowledge. See how you score and how many of today's six-graders are meeting the same standard. We hope your brain is ready! Plus, don't miss an upcoming LEVinar on special education and an interview with State Superintendent of Public Instruction Chris Reykdal on his latest education funding priorities.

In Spokane? It's your last chance to join us for our breakfast event on Thursday, October 18th. Don't miss our keynote speaker Jane Broom, Senior Director of Microsoft's philanthropy work for Washington state.  

At League of Education Voters, we champion an education system that provides every student in the state an equal opportunity for success. Thank you for working alongside us. 

Could you pass sixth grade in Washington State?

Washington state's curriculum has been updated many times over the last few decades. Which means that the last time you looked at a sixth grade test, it probably looked a whole lot different. Take this quiz using real questions from Washington state's curriculum to find out how you score on math, geography, and English language arts. Then, see how many sixth-graders today are meeting the standards and how we're working to close the achievement gap.
