Angry Parents, Teachers Push Arizona School-Funding Campaign.

The Arizona Republic (10/14, Sanchez) reports that Arizona politicians are “tripping over each other to find a way to pump billions of dollars into education” in response to angry parents and teachers chastising them for low funding. There is no “united front on the best way to boost school funding,” but an ongoing lawsuit and public outcry “have put the issue at the top of the state policy agenda.” Proposed ideas include “increasing distribution of state trust land funds, spending state surpluses, capping corporate contributions to private school tuition organizations and using early childhood development funds.”
