You’ve probably seen the headlines about Arizona’s critical teacher shortage and the thousands of students starting school this week with uncertified teachers leading their classrooms.
But did you know that Arizona’s legislative majority could do something TODAY to help end this crisis?
Arizona has $726 million in reserves–$460 million in rainy day funds and another $266 million surplus. Meanwhile, the courts have determined our schools were shorted $330 million in inflationary funding—money that was approved by voters and mandated for our schools.
It’s time to pay our debt!
Call, email, tweet, and message Governor Ducey. Tell him to call a special session, and demand Republican holdouts settle the lawsuit.
