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.
