Ross Reynolds speaks with Seattle City Council President Tim Burgess about the recently unveiled proposal to fund universal pre-K in Seattle. The proposal was announced today by Seattle Mayor Ed Murray, Councilmember Burgess, and Seattle Schools Superintendent Jose Banda. If approved by the City Council, the proposal will be forwarded to the November ballot.
