|On Monday, in his State of the State address, Governor Ducey said little about his commitment to fully funding Arizona K-12 public schools.
The Governor continues to focus only on marginal changes in public education. He is neglecting the bold and meaningful steps that today’s conditions demand. Parents, teachers, faith leaders, voters from all parties and business CEOs have called for significant new investments to meet our shared education goals. There are still 1,700 teacher vacancies across the state, and nearly 1,000 teachers have had to leave Arizona’s classrooms this school year alone.
We need a bipartisan solution immediately, one that meets these principles. Arizona students can’t wait any longer.
Call Governor Ducey’s office today at 602.542.4331 to let him know you want to see real action on school funding now. Below is a sample script:
My name is [your name]. I’m [a teacher, a student, a parent, a community member…]. I’m calling to let you know that during this legislative session, I’m expecting Governor Ducey to find a long-term, bipartisan solution to our education funding crisis.
