With an 85% yes vote today, Seattle educators have voted to join the wave of one day strikes in Washington State over the legislature’s failure to fund education. The strike will be on Tuesday, May 19.

Snohomish, Lake Stevens and Franklin Pierce teachers in Washington State will strike on May 8, according to the Washington Education Association. On Wednesday, nearly 3,000 teachers in the Northshore and Lake Washington School Districts are also walking out.
