YES to teacher pay raises, NO to tax cuts and credits

This petition had 2,607 supporters

The most essential tool for a student’s success in school is a qualified teacher, yet thousands of Arizona classrooms are going without.

Instead of dealing with the teacher shortage crisis head on, Arizona is hitting the snooze button, continuing the failed status quo of more tax cuts and tax credit giveaways that leave our teachers as some of the lowest paid educators in the nation.

AZ Schools Now is asking you to shift the state’s priority back to public education.

We can recruit and keep extraordinary teachers for our children by providing a meaningful salary increase and ending the revenue cuts that leave fewer and fewer dollars available for our schools.

AZ Schools Now budget proposal champions students and teachers by investing in a four-percent teacher raise—ten times the Governor’s proposal.

The raise can be paid for through realistic financial options, such as freezing corporate tax credits for private schools and taking a time out on new tax credits.

We value public education. We ask you to support teacher pay raises, not tax giveaways.
