Education a top priority for House Democrats

"Building strong families"

"Strengthen communities"

"Investing in our youth"

These are just a few of the themes emanating from today's House Democratic Caucus advance. The members are meeting to build the caucus agenda for the 2013 legislative session.

Education is the prevailing topic. House Democrats are working on several ideas that will fully fund education, reduce the high school dropout rate, close the opportunity gap, make college more affordable, and invest in workforce development and training programs that will prepare Washington residents for high-quality, family wage jobs.

The 105-day session begins January 14, 2013.
