Doug Ducey must not be having a great week.
On Monday, 300 Arizona teachers gathered to protest Governor Doug Ducey and his continued failures on teacher pay and public education funding. While Ducey was giving his weekly radio interview at KTAR, teachers outside chanted “What’s the plan, Ducey, what’s the plan,” and held signs that debunked Ducey’s lies on teacher pay and demanded better funding for schools.
Ducey spun out more misinformation during the radio interview, but Reporter Joe Dana at 12 News fact checked him quick-Saying Ducey’s claims were FALSE.
These headlines probably didn’t cheer Ducey up either
Ducey must be a glutton for punishment
He then said in the press that he WON’T veto tax cuts that will further drain revenue from the state and take even more funding away from schools.
Ducey Ignores Students Wanting To Talk About Gun Reforms
To top it off Arizona students walked out of schools and descended on the Capitol to demand Governor Doug Ducey pass sensible gun reform. They occupied Ducey’s office waiting to speak directly with him, but Ducey couldn’t be bothered. His Education Policy staffer said he had no time to listen to their concerns of their safety at school, and apparently couldn’t promise the students the would ever get a meeting with their own Governor.
Making matters even worse, Ducey tweeted about the Arizona Cardinals during the student sit in. It was not appreciated by the students and even the popular sports site Deadspin called Ducey out on it.
Arizonans are clearly fed up with Doug Ducey and his priorities. He should take note.
