Voters face a school choice

The system for funding public education in Washington is a hybrid, a conglomeration of state and local resources born of political circumstance, court orders, constitutional mandate and economic reality. Every few years the quirks of the system hit home, as large shares of school budgets are reset with the consent of voters. Much of what we expect of local schools is subject to this ultimate in local control. Taxpayers control a good share of the purse strings.

Then there are circumstances when bricks and mortar are required and we are asked to back a loan to finance construction. It’s another local choice, a bond election.
