New 'Follow the Money' Webinar & Poverty as a Factor in K-12 Funding Memo
Last year there were several presentations and learning sessions about the Road Map Project Follow the Money analysis, which was contracted by Road Map Project partner organizations, with the support of an Aligned Funders' Rapid Resource Fund Grant, and produced by Third Sector Intelligence. 

Due to the popularity of those sessions, we have created a 15-minute webinar with a simplified version of the original presentation, intended to provide the basics of understanding education funding in Washington State and the challenges we are facing. 

In addition to the webinar, we recently released the 'Poverty as a Factor in K-12 Funding' memo, which expands upon how the state does - or doesn't - factor in how poverty could impact budget needs for schools and districts. CCER's Executive Director Mary Jean Ryan wrote a blog explaining why we dove into this topic and why considering poverty in budget decisions matters for education funding.
