The Washington Supreme Court is marking the beginning of school with a mandatory assembly for the Legislature on education finance.

The court has ordered lawmakers to come to court on Wednesday to explain why they haven’t followed its orders to fix the way Washington pays for public education.

Lawmakers, the governor and others say the court needs to be patient and give the Legislature more time to fulfill the orders in the 2012 McCleary decision.

The attorney for the coalition that sued the state over education funding says the Legislature has made so little progress toward meeting the goal that only more pressure from the court will make it happen.
