McKenna, Inslee both back teacher evaluation plan

Jay Inslee and Rob McKenna praised the state’s new bipartisan evaluation law backed by Gov. Chris Gregoire, which moves in that direction, but they agreed the state should go further. School issues are expected to play a central role in the race, which is unfolding on the heels of the state Supreme Court declaring the Legislature isn’t amply funding basic education. McKenna has announced an education plan, and Inslee plans to unveil one next week. “This is going to be the first gubernatorial campaign in at least 20 years where our public schools are the No. 1 issue in the election,” said McKenna, the state attorney general and a Bellevue Republican.
