Here are the excerpts of an interview taped May 14, 2012 during then-candidate Jay Inslee’s attempt to win the endorsement of the education reform group Stand For Children. Ultimately the organization endorsed GOP candidate Rob McKenna but Inslee’s positions were not that different from Stand’s own agenda.

The segment on use of teacher evaluations for personnel decisions like layoffs, assignments and rehires appears at 8:55. The segment on using his concern for dropouts, students he calls the forgotten children, begins at 9:50. Part of his platform would include assigning letter grades for all public schools without dropout rates being a factor in that grade.
