The Seattle Times LiveWire event series will present "Set up to fail: The cost of not funding K-12 education" on Wednesday, Mar. 22, at 6:30 p.m. at UW Kane Hall. LiveWire events feature meaningful discussions about vital issues impacting our region and its people. Each event brings together experts for provocative conversations on key topics moderated by Seattle Times journalists.

Failing to adequately fund basic public education in Washington state costs us all. High school dropouts are more likely to be unemployed, rely on welfare and end up in the juvenile justice system, leading to incarceration, court costs and social services that burden our local economy. Learn how investing in our kids pays off for them and for Washington.

The Seattle Times LiveWire series is presented by Microsoft. Tickets are free. For more information, please visit

Panelists will be announced soon.
