Here’s a letter sent yesterday (Sept. 10) to the superintendent of Tacoma School District from Tacoma area legislators addressing the teacher strike there.
From the letter: “We recognize that the funding formula agreed upon in 2017 disproportionately affected Tacoma Public Schools and a few other districts. We aim to fix these inequities in the 2019 legislative session because we want to keep salaries competitive to attract and retain great teachers and staff.”

Today is the fourth day schools in Tacoma have been closed.
