Description

Set up to fail: The cost of not funding K-12 education

Please join The Seattle Times LiveWire for a forum about how failing to adequately fund basic public education in Washington state costs us all. High school dropouts are more likely to be unemployed, rely on welfare and end up in the juvenile justice system, leading to incarceration, court costs and social services that burden our local economy. Learn how investing in our kids pays off for them and for Washington.

The Seattle Times LiveWire series, presented by Microsoft, features meaningful discussions about vital issues impacting our region and its people. For more information, please visit seattletimes.com/livewire or email livewire@seattletimes.com.
