Rep. Chad Magendanz talks with Lars Larson about charter fix
Rep. Chad Magendanz, R-Issaquah, has long championed legislation that would fund charter schools in a way that is acceptable to the state Supreme Court. After many efforts to provide a 'fix,' lawmakers in the House approved a measure that makes way for funding through the state's Opportunity Pathways account. It was an arduous vote. House legislators were on the floor for nearly two and a half hours, and the speeches were at times heated and emotional. In the end, the vote was 58-39.
Magendanz talks with Lars Larson explaining the ins and outs of the vote, and the issues that have surrounded the funding of charter schools.
