ACT TODAY TO SAVE AZ PUBLIC EDUCATION NOW!!!!! Contact your legislators.

TODAY the AZ state legislature could potentially pass a resolution that would cut K-12 spending for the CURRENT YEAR by $133 MILLION.

I know I have waited too long to post this, but it is EXTREMELY easy to e-mail or phone your representative and senator and tell them to save public education.

From the perspective of TEA/AEA (from what I gather) this is an ideological battle-- many of our state representatives don't truly believe in public education and will take every opportunity to chip away at what is an essential part of the American Dream. We are already a national embarrassment in educational spending. It HAS to stop.

I have received an e-mail from our new TUSD superintendent stating that AZ was, in effect, also about to "tear up" a check for $500 million from the U.S. government.
