Education quality won’t go up unless taxes do, new policy brief suggests
Dec. 6, 2017
A new policy brief put out by the Children’s Action Alliance claims the quickest way to repair Arizona’s education system is through higher taxes.
While Gov. Doug Ducey claims education can be funded without raising taxes, critics argue the state’s teacher shortage, overcrowded classrooms and outdated resources prove otherwise. Children’s Action Alliance President Dana Wolfe Naimark says that waiting for the economy to grow before investing in schools will only make the problem worse.
