    The Washington State Constitution http://www.leg.wa.gov/lawsandagencyrules/pages/constitution.aspx
    Within Article IX, Education presents this:
    . . . .


    SECTION 1 PREAMBLE. It is the paramount duty of the state to make ample provision for the education of all children residing within its borders, without distinction or preference on account of race, color, caste, or sex.

    SECTION 2 PUBLIC SCHOOL SYSTEM. The legislature shall provide for a general and uniform system of public schools. The public school system shall include common schools, and such high schools, normal schools, and technical schools as may hereafter be established. But the entire revenue derived from the common school fund and the state tax for common schools shall be exclusively applied to the support of the common schools.

    . . . .

    But, I can not find the words “basic education” used within this Washington Constitution document. So, when words like “standards” or “standard” or “basic” joined with word like “education”; as a result, I did not find these references related to Washington State education funding required by Constitution rule. Did I miss it? If I did please give me the citation to Constitution rule.

    Maybe what is need for this Washington industry of education is this: What is this industry of education result required to make educated all children residing within the State of Washington borders?
