Our next monthly meeting of Republicans in the 1st and 45th legislative districts is this Thursday, October 27. Come early for pizza!
On the agenda: a countdown what we need to accomplish before Election Day November 8th!
Guest speaker Liv Finne, Director of the Center for Education at Washington Policy Center! Learn if Parents and Taxpayers are getting their money’s worth from our public schools, and how Washington State can catch up with other states on K-12 education choice.
Liv is the author of An Option for Learning: An Assessment of Student Achievement in Charter Public Schools, which in 2011 reignited the charter school debate in Washington state. She wrote “Why parents will love charter schools,” “Why teachers will love charter schools,” and many other publications during the 2012 public debate on Initiative 1240, the nation’s first charter school initiative. When charter schools came under attack from the state teachers union, she wrote “Analysis: Why the state supreme court ruling against charter schools is wrong.” She is also the author of Washington Policy Center’s widely-read education blog, and of Washington Policy Center’s Education Reform Plan: Eight Practical Ways to Improve Public Schools. Liv holds a law degree from Boston University School of Law and a Bachelor of Arts degree from Wellesley College.
