We are Proud to Endorse Proposition 208
Arizona has an opportunity to make a historic investment in our schools and our future by passing Proposition 208. We strongly support a YES vote.
Every week, we hear what other states are doing in education and here is the simple truth – Arizona is not just falling behind, our state’s future is in peril. Our test scores are well below the national average and employers regularly pass on investing in Arizona due to our low education rankings. We must act.
The solution is on our ballots now in Proposition 208, the Invest in Education Act.
One of the keys to a child’s success is lower class sizes so students can get the one-on-one attention that drives success. This initiative will hire more teachers in Arizona classrooms and – to help us retain the very best teachers – it will give them a much-needed raise. It also invests significant new funds into career and technical training programs for students who choose not to go to college while supporting the Arizona Teachers’ Academy so educators can access resources to become even better teachers for our kids. Prop 208 does all of this and implements strict accountability to make sure every dollar reaches the classroom.
For these reasons, and many more, please join us in voting “Yes” on Proposition 208.
