The Washington state legislature began a special session last week that is expected to emphasize how to alter and increase funding for public schools.

Gov. Jay Inslee, a Democrat, called for the session, in which lawmakers are expected to debate proposals for reducing class sizes in K-3 and provide more money for instructional materials and operating costs.

Last year, the state's supreme court held the state in contempt for its failure to adequately boost aid to public schools in light of a court ruling in 2012. The court has threatened penalties if lawmakers do not do so this year.
