Statement on the Vergara v. State of California Ruling

A teacher at South Shore PK-8 reads a book with his class.At the League of Education Voters (LEV), we value the role of a teacher in a student’s life and educational trajectory.  “The research is clear,” says LEV CEO Chris Korsmo. “Teachers make the biggest school-based difference in a child’s education.”

Access to high-quality instruction can help close the achievement and opportunity gaps in our state and help ensure that all Washington students have access to a world-class education that provides the opportunity for success. Chris is optimistic about the impact the Vergara v. State of California ruling will have on public education: “We must put our kids’ well-being and learning at the center of every policy issue we have in public education. I hope that the ruling will be a constructive catalyst toward that end.”
