Don’t let K-12 education get caught in budget crossfire (access required)

Our governor and our Legislature seem to be headed to a showdown at the O.K. Corral next Tuesday (June 30) over the budget. Hopefully, Arizona's K-12 students won't get caught in the crossfire. Continued cuts to education will only dim prospects for Arizona's future leaders and all of today's children who will contribute to our state's economy.

No matter the vote, empowerment scholarships have helped many

In November, Arizona voters will decide whether expanding the state’s Empowerment Scholarship Account program makes sense. It was originally started to help the parents of disabled children, foster children, or parents who are active military. It evolved, with little controversy, to include adopted children, children attending D/F rated schools, and those in Native American communities. About 5,000 children are now using the scholarships to attend private schools or be home-schooled, if they don’t feel the public school system is right for their special, unique needs.
