State Superintendent: Schools Must Be Safe for All

State Superintendent: Schools Must Be Safe for All

Following comments to a congressional committee by U.S. Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos, State Superintendent Chris Reykdal issued a statement reiterating Washington state's stance on protecting our students who are undocumented in our K-12 schools.

"Our students who are undocumented and their families are vital members of our schools and communities. Our schools should be safe places, focused on learning and helping students reach their highest ideals. Schools should never serve as a channel for the federal government to make students feel unsafe."
