Over the last few weeks, many critical issues have been raised by our teachers that directly affect our students’ experience in classrooms across the state. It is important that our elected leaders listen to and acknowledge the concerns of our community and we appreciate the Governor bringing in school leaders to work on solutions to these issues.
The plan laid out by the Governor today would lead to meaningful compensation increases for teachers across Arizona. We are encouraged by what we heard from Governor Ducey today and are eager to hear further detail about impacts to our broader education system. We appreciate the Governor’s statement that two of Arizona’s most important priorities are Arizona teachers and Arizona classrooms and we wholeheartedly agree.
