These are important days for education in North Central Washington. From Oroville to Palisades, future school district budgets are in the hands of voters. Ballots will be mailed this week for the Feb. 11 elections. At stake — up to 20 percent of school revenue or more, to pay for everything from teachers to technology, to make the difference between educational sufficiency and educational impoverishment. At stake — bonds, to build classrooms, to turn inefficient and overstuffed facilities into a place for learning, for today and the future.

Today, a roundup of proposals in Okanogan County. We unreservedly recommend a yes vote.
