Re: "2015 action agenda" (editorial, 1-4).
We deeply appreciate The News Tribune’s editorial urging the Legislature to protect funding for two- and four-year colleges and universities. As the editorial stated so well, the education goal line can’t stop at K-12. Washingtonians need access to higher education for well-paying jobs and a prosperous economy.
Investments in higher education flow through the students and into our economy and communities, elevating the quality of life throughout our entire state.
