Earlier this week, I traveled to Olympia to testify before the Washington State legislature on the recommendations of the Higher Education Funding Task Force, which I had the privilege to chair. The task force recommendations provide a systematic roadmap for stabilizing the health of our higher education sector and paving the way for more Washington students to earn four-year degrees.
As I talked with lawmakers, I was struck by several observations.
First, some proposals floating around Olympia would result in even deeper cuts to higher education, making a bad problem even worse. Higher education has undergone severe budget cuts over the past couple of budgets, and that is ground we will need to make up if we expect our public colleges and universities to serve more Washington students going forward.
