Superintendent Reykdal’s K-12 Education Vision & McCleary Framework
The goal of Washington's public education system is to prepare every student who walks through our school doors for post-secondary aspirations, careers, and life. To do so, we must embrace an approach to education that encompasses the whole child. In the ongoing struggle to amply fund our schools, we have lost this larger vision. The challenge to amply fund schools to the satisfaction of the State Supreme Court is not the final goal - it is merely the first step in a much larger transformation that will propel Washington state's K-12 public schools atop the national conversation in quality, outcomes, and equity. In our state's history we have engaged in this transformative work only a few times. This is a once-in-a-generation moment to redesign our public schools to achieve our highest ideals.
