WA Superintendent of Public Instruction Randy Dorn Will Not Run for 3rd Term

Posted: Updated:

SEATTLE, WA - Superintendent of Public Instruction Randy Dorn announced Thursday he will not be running for a third term in office.

Dorn says his decision does not mean he is giving up the fight for a fully funded school system in Washington state.

Since he was elected in 2008, Dorn has criticized the way the Legislature has paid for education.

He says some promising ideas have been proposed in answer to the Supreme Court's 2012 McCleary decision on school funding, but none have come up for a vote.

Dorn says he doesn't know what he will do next, but he plans to continue to advocate for kids and watch state officials.

The former school teacher says he has spent his entire career fighting for students and he's not going to stop now.
