Ask the Candidates to Prioritize Education

We’re asking the candidates for Governor and Superintendent of Public Instruction to prioritize and offer solutions to the education issues that Arizonans value the most, including ensuring we have great teachers and leaders in our schools, addressing school funding, and helping our students improve in reading and math.


If you haven’t already, add your name to the letter today.

Ask the Legislature and Governor to Address the AEL

$1.3B in K-12 funding is at risk if the legislature does not address the Aggregate Expenditure Limit. The legislature should address the AEL as soon as possible to allow schools to move forward with their existing budgets and eliminate the uncertainty they are feeling today.


Read more about the AEL in our most recent blog.


School Vouchers Explained

In June, the Arizona legislature and Governor approved a mass expansion of Empowerment Scholarship Accounts (school vouchers), which we strongly opposed. 


Read our most recent Education Explainer to better understand how the program works, who is currently using it, how much funding they receive and the potential impact of the expansion.
