-Washington’s timeline is a bit faster than the project’s, but not a big deal

Lucinda Young, WEA — Budget cut $1.5 billion from education, need to make up losses to pension and compensation, resources may not be available for things PESB wants to do; 16 days of the school year will be paid for with federal stimulus funds; higher education is also cut; teachers who might normally volunteer to help grade assessments might be too stretched at their schools; WEA members feel HB 2261 says institutions of higher education and the licensure system are unable to provide quality teachers; some WEA members are angry about ProCert, but younger teachers who recently went through ProCert have good things to say; WEA members trust PESB; please continue to reach out to educators, WEA will be glad to help; despite cuts, it’s important we keep quality licensure system
