Education loses out in Arizona
Or at least it does in my hometown, which voted overwhelmingly against what would amount to an average of $11 more a year in property taxes to shore up a failing school budget. I’m of the opinion that if we don’t fund education the rest of the story is already over. No – funding is not the only answer. Plenty of other problems exist. But choosing to not fund education in light of this current recession speaks more generally to our lack of commitment to education reform in whatever shape it takes. And that’s just sad.
