What’s At Stake – Erin Duncan

Erin quote

Dear Invest in Education Opponents,

I have taught in the AZ public school system for 27 years. Why is ok for me to spend hundreds of dollars of my own money a year on my classroom when AZ teachers are among the lowest paid in the nation? Why is it okay for AZ to have one of the highest sales taxes in the nation that impacts poor families the most? When will the super-rich pay their fair share? We all benefit from a well-educated populace and workforce. 

I went to AZ schools from 3rd grade-Community college to Universities and the funding gets worse and worse. What we are doing by starving our schools of funding should be classified as criminal negligence.

Sincerely,

Erin Duncan,
M.S., NBCT
(Early Childhood Generalist)
