- Do you know how much we spend per student?
- Are we falling short?
- Are we adequately addressing the achievement gap that continues to affect low-income students and students of color?
- How do we fix our broken funding system?
The Community Forums Network (CFN) is surveying Washington State residents until October 28 to gather public input for policy makers, local media and other stakeholders.
Please take 10-15 minutes to get your voice into the conversation!
To get started, go to the CFN website. Watch the six-minute video that frames the issue, then take the online survey. At the end of the survey you can select Solid Ground to receive points toward earning a grant.
Solid Ground’s Advocacy Director Tony Lee is currently helping build a coalition of groups representing minority communities to advocate for additional resources for programs and strategies to eliminate the achievement gap impacting low-income students and students of color in K-12 education. A question about this strategy is included in the survey.
CFN is dedicated to asking great questions and starting valuable conversations that help our communities move forward. They are making it easier for all of us to dive in and be heard.
Upon completion of its research, CFN will prepare a “Where’s the consensus?” report for local decision makers, media partners and all of us.
“That way we amplify your voice and focus on finding solutions together,” states the CFN website. “In the end, open communication builds stronger communities.”
