Tweet of the Week
Last week 75,000 people marched on the state capitol in the largest teacher walkout in national history.
And in response a coalition of community groups filed the #InvestinEd ballot initiative. The initiative would create a secure funding source to keep great teachers in Arizona classrooms and give our students the one-on-one attention they need to be successful. And it does so in a responsible way: by asking those who can afford it to pay their fair share.
Even Republicans agree that Republican policies have destroyed public education and it’s time for change.
Listen to these teachers on why they’re walking out.
Enough is enough. It’s time for Arizonans to take the power back into their own hands, and time for those who can afford it to invest in education. If you agree, show your support by sharing this!
