Save Our Schools Arizona

In Arizona, public schools are the centers of our communities. Our local public schools must be well-funded and well-resourced to create safer, stronger communities and a stronger economy. However, Arizona’s public school system is the worst-funded in the nation. This means Arizona children are not getting the quality education they deserve. Schools have been forced to slash budgets for teacher and staff salaries, programs, nurses, counselors, extracurriculars, advanced coursework, the arts, and more.
