Who Is “The Education Governor?”

Rob McKenna (R) and Jay Inslee (D) are running for Washington State’s governorship, and both will want the WEA and NEA union endorsements, but who is the true friend of education in Washington State?

This Publicola article shows what we know so far, but really we have little to go on. McKenna wants to increase funding without a plan to do it (and he does not want to raise any tax, so from where does the money come?). He worries me. To me, he sounds like Governor Walker in Wisconsin.

Inslee just hasn’t said anything yet. I’m curious what he will say.
