OLYMPIA, Wash. (AP) - Gov. Jay Inslee said that early learning opportunities for children in the state are an important investment.

Inslee, in prepared remarks for his “State of the State” address Tuesday, said that his proposals translate to thousands more low-income children attending high-quality preschools.

Citing his proposals made last month, Inslee notes that he’s seeking to fully fund class-size reductions from kindergarten through third grade, and also pay for all-day kindergarten across the state.

The state Supreme Court has held the Legislature in contempt for its lack of progress fixing the way it pays for public schools in Washington, and has given lawmakers until the end of session to comply with its orders or else face sanctions.
