WPC's Center for Education conducts objective research and makes practical policy recommendations to improve Washington State's ability to carry out its paramount duty to educate every child within its borders.
Seattle - Professor Bill Ouchi of UCLA’s Anderson School of Management will be speaking at The Harbor Club in downtown Seattle on Thursday, January 22nd.
Last week the state’s Joint Task Force on Basic Education Finance recommended the state increase K-12 spending by billions of dollars. WPC has invited Prof. Ouchi to its kick-off lunch event to offer an alternative to just spending more money on a public school system whose management and governance is dysfunctional. This better idea does not require billions of dollars in new spending.
