SEATTLE -

Gov. Jay Inslee has a plan for putting $2.3 billion more into preschool through college education and workforce training and for meeting the state's obligation to the Supreme Court a year early.

But he won't say where he's going to get the money until Thursday, when he releases his full budget proposal.

On Monday, he announced his education policy initiatives at a town-hall style meeting in person in Bellevue and on video screens in Moses Lake, Spokane and Tacoma.

In addition to budget plans related to the McCleary education lawsuit, the governor is proposing:

-Two more years without a college tuition increase.

- Raises for public school teachers.

- More money for college scholarships.

-Dollars for state-funded preschool.

-More money for job training and pre-apprenticeship programs at community colleges.
