Hosted by SOS AZ:
“Save Our Schools is a statewide, grassroots, volunteer group of concerned Arizona citizens who wants our state to prioritize public education. We are parents with kids at public schools, charter schools, and private schools. We are Republicans, Democrats, and independents. We support school choice, but we do not support the expansion of ESAs, commonly known as vouchers, that take even more money away from public education when our schools are already in crisis. We share the belief that strong schools for all our kids will create a strong state and a more prosperous Arizona. We will put SB1431 voucher expansion on the ballot, and it will be the first step toward restoring the Arizona educational system.”
