Teachers to picket

On Wednesday, May 23, Northshore Education Association (NSEA) members will join other Northshore School District professionals in making a public statement of their dissatisfaction with the funding choices being made by the Washington State Legislature. At five intersections, members will carry on informational picketing from 4-6 p.m.
   The association membership wishes to reinforce in a public statement its concern that the Legislature, by cutting other educational funding, is by-passing the will of the people, as expressed in their support of I-728 and I-732. The NSEA membership believes such action is a violation of the intent of the "paramount duty" clause of the state's constitution and a violation of the purpose of the initiative process.
   Picketers will be at the following locations: 68th and Bothell Way, Canyon Park and 228th, Bothell Way and Bothell-Everett Highway, Woodinville-Duvall Road and Avondale, and Woodinville at 175th and 132nd.
