The fact is that we are not providing adequate funding for our public schools and our students. Moving to an adequate funding level for K-12 public schools in Arizona will be a long trip. Arizona has started that trip, so let’s not allow the train to get off track because we have a long uphill route that will need us all onboard.

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.
