Welcome to the Chandler Education Association website. The mission of CEA is:

We hope this website can help you stay informed about issues surrounding education, and to be a strong advocate for yourself and your profession.
It’s time again … the Arizona Legislature is back in session. We made great strides last spring and worked hard to elect pro-education candidates in the fall … but we still need to be vigilant during this session to hold our supporters accountable and prevent bad bills from being passed (including those that are intended to punish us for speaking out).
How can you help? We’ll be talking about lots of ways to help, but an easy one is to subscribe to the AEA Legislative Update. This subscription will bring you the latest news on what’s happening at the capitol (including ways you can take action) delivered to your inbox. Subscribe today, and stay tuned for more ways you can be engaged in what’s happening at the capitol.
Governor Ducey gave his state of the state address this evening and was predictably vague about his plans for public education funding. Besides repeating his 20 by 2020 pledge, there was nothing new offered: no talk of increased funding beyond 20 by 2020 (which still leaves our schools well short of 2008 funding levels), and no discussion of identifying a dedicated funding stream for public education.
This isn’t acceptable. Our students and our schools deserve better. Please call Governor Ducey at 602-542-4331 and tell him that we need a bipartisan solution on education funding during this legislative session. Visit this site for more details and ideas on what to say in your call.
