Wednesday on the Inland Journal podcast, the debate about school levies in Washington. Last year, legislators shifted much of the tax burden for funding basic education from local property taxes to the state and limited how much local money school districts could raise. Now, school administrators are asking to ease the restrictions on local levy money. We’ll hear some of the arguments and talk with Spokane Superintendent Shelley Redinger. We'll also hear about how a Coeur d'Alene High School student's app is helping people who have trouble reading.
