Tell the Politicians: Basic education funding for 100% of Washington students. Not 20%.
Sign The Petition
Our politicians want you to believe that we can only afford smaller classes for 20% of our public school students. This is simply not true. The solution? A fair revenue plan.
Did you know that 10,000 Washington families earn over $1.2 million each year? You heard it correctly: the top 1% earns over 20% of income in the state!
At the same time, because we have the most backward tax system in the nation, low-income families pay more than their fair share in taxes - about six times as much as the wealthiest families.
We can fix this. A 5% tax applied to income above $500,000 earned by the top 1% would fully fund class-size reductions for all Washington students.
Smaller classes are by law part of basic education. The state can meet its duty to students with new, fair revenues that ensure the wealthiest Washingtonians are paying their fair share.
