How To Give AZ Teachers A $10,000 Raise Instantly Without Higher Taxes

 

DATA TAKEN FROM THE AZ AUDITOR GENERAL’S WEBSITE:

Number of K-12 students = 1,124,423

Fiscal 2016 $ per student = $9,136

Total $ for all K-12 = $10,272,728,528

2016 % of $ going to classroom = 53.5%

2004 % of $ going to classroom = 58.6%

Number of teachers = 49,000

Simple arithmetic shows us that if we were to take the 2016 level of funding and allocate to the classroom the same percentage as we did in 2004 (58.6%), we would have had an additional $524 million going to the classroom, sufficient to have given every teacher a $10,692 pay raise, without any further raping of the taxpayers. Why is this not happening? Good question for school administrators.
