Our View: Education funding is the key
The timing was particularly fortuitous.
Tuesday, a speaker at a gathering of Southeast Arizona women Democrats pounded the theme that America needs to catch up in education; and Arizona needs to catch up more than most states. Wednesday, an Arizona Superior Court judge overruled a decision by Secretary of State Ken Bennett to keep a 1 cent sales tax referendum off the Nov. 6 ballot.
Together, the message and the fact that Arizona voters now have a chance of taking charge of the funding for education in this state, represent something close to hope for what can happen in future public school classrooms.
