Another candidate for SPI

Posted by David Postman

Former Democratic lawmaker Randy Dorn said today he's running for superintendent of public instruction. Dorn, of Eatonville in Pierce County, and was chairman of the House Education Committee. He is executive director of the Public School Employees of Washington, the second largest school employees union.

Richland School Superintendent Rich Semler is also running and has been endorsed by the Washington Education Association, the teacher's union and the largest school union in the state.

Superintendent of Public Instruction Terry Bergeson is running for a fourth term in the non-partisan office.

Dorn says he wants the WASL scrapped and replaced with a test that is "more fair, more understandable, and more concise so testing doesn’t dominate curriculum and the school calendar."
