Proposition 123 - Statement
Author: Helios Education Foundation
Posted on: October 2, 2019
In a historic moment in Arizona, we saw education, executive, legislative, business, and community leaders come together to settle an inflationary lawsuit. Arizona voters passed this settlement via Prop 123 that invests critical resources for students into our public schools. Helios believes that the passage of Prop 123 is an acknowledgement that education is a priority for voters in Arizona and we must ensure our schools have adequate resources to support student success. We are disappointed in the district court decision and support an appeal.
In addition to our support of Prop. 123, Helios is committed to further investment by working toward a long-term, sustainable funding plan for Arizona schools that invests resources in the full education continuum – from early childhood education through postsecondary.
