A highly contested<a href="http://kuow.org/post/seattle-teachers-union-votes-today-tentative-agreement"> teacher contract debate</a> had parents worried whether schools would even begin on time last Wednesday. When school did open, software problems caused confusion all over the Seattle district. With all this news, it promises to be an exciting year. Marcie Sillman talks with Seattle Superintendent José Banda about the first week and what’s on tap for the school year.
