Carving Paths to Success After High School: What Will It Take to Keep the Promise?

The LWVS-KC Education Committee hosted a forum exploring the vision and the challenges of providing free community college, first to Seattle residents, expanding to King County, and then statewide. Our panelists will address the Seattle Promise, ST3 funding, progress to date, and the Washington College Promise legislation.
