Time for a change in leadership


Tuition vouchers are a foolish disaster for public education. Vouchers may provide the public with a sense that politicians are indeed taking action, an action that will allow businesses to line their pockets at the expense of the next generation. De Vos, Trump, and the Republicans know full well that vouchers will not work. As publication education decays at a more rapid rate post-vouchers it gives them the excuse to privatize all education. Schools that make a serious commitment to improving instruction through improved curriculum, leadership and teacher support get results. Arizona Public Schools are dead last because the state has been systematically cutting funding for a decade. It is time to reverse the trend. Dump the state leadership for a pro-education, pro-humanitarian, pro-environment government that works for the people of Arizona, not against them.
