Taking Back America By Taking Back Our Schools

$2.7 Billion More! Gilbert Public Schools (AZ Re-education Camp Sector 41) Are Rolling In The Dough - Part IV

The Education Industrial Complex's chief whore, Governor Doug Ducey, wants high-speed broadband in our rural and tribal schools, and other wasteful spending that contributes nothing to making children better educated; but, perhaps, it does supply mountains of money for his cronie government contractor, government employee union and government school administrator buddies; who all get massive kickbacks from all of this and will move heaven and earth to insure his reelection. Just remember this the next time teachers complain they don't have enough paper. And if you think all of this is free or "all without raising taxes" i would like to sell you some ocean front property in Gilbert Arizona.

From Ducey's website:

Doug believes a quality K-12 education system is the most important thing we can do to ensure Arizona kids have a strong and secure future. His focus is on increasing our investment in public education and improving results in the classroom.

That’s why he has increased education funding every year in office, for a total of $2.7 Billion – all without raising taxes. This includes:

  • A 20% teacher pay increase by school year 2020.
  • Prop 123, the bi-partisan effort that injected $3.5 billion over 10 years into Arizona’s K-12 schools.
  • Restoring recession-era cuts to school funding — $371 million over the next five years — that can be used for support staff, textbooks, technology, and other school improvements.
  • The Arizona Teachers Academy, created to attract new teachers by allowing aspiring teachers the ability to finish college debt-free if they commit to teach in an Arizona school.
  • Being the first state to pass the American Civics Act – a new law requiring all high school students to pass the same civics test any new naturalized citizen has to pass in order to graduate.

Doug wants to see more dollars go to the classroom, and continue to drive up teacher pay, while investing in other key priorities like career and technical education and high-speed broadband in our rural and tribal schools.
