Update, May 5:
Seattle’s Technical Alliance said Washington State is dead last among 10 states it ranks for graduate programs in science and engineering. Check out this article in The Seattle Times. Even Utah ranks higher.
As we said in our EDC speech, that Washington ranks so poorly in an epicenter that include Boeing and Microsoft is simply pathetic.
We blasted Washington’s governor and Legislature in our speech to the Economic Development Council of Snohomish County for inaction over the past several decades to promote aerospace here and to get off the dime on education.
Well, guess what? The Legislature ended its session April 26 and–no action. See this story in The Everett Herald.
Now the governor says she will take action into her own hands. We were totally unimpressed with her first cut. We’ll see how she does with the second.
