Prop 123: #RememberInNovember

May 20, 2016:

I want to thank everyone who voted NO on Proposition 123 this week. And I want to congratulate those who actively worked against its passage – and FOR the public schools in Arizona.

The positive spin put on Prop 123 is based on a fundamental fallacy: that the Governor and the legislators who work with him are actually very supportive of the public school system. In fact, it’s just the opposite. They want to privatize our public schools. There’s a great deal of money to be made there.

The good news is that the very narrow passage of 123 indicates that folks are starting to wake up. They recognize baloney even if it’s wrapped in “support” for education. In reality, the only way to save public schools in Arizona is to vote for leaders at all levels who will stand firm and properly fund them. We have another chance to do that in November.
