AZ Legislature Votes To Dismantle Public Education

Arizona Democratic Party Chair Alexis Tameron issued the following statement on today’s Arizona House and Senate vote to expand the school-voucher scam:

"Today, Arizona families and future generations got screwed.

“The Republicans that control all levers of government in Arizona not only voted to continue the race to the bottom, but they dug the hole to bury public education as we know it. The nail in the coffin was secured today by their vote to expand their failed school voucher program that will continue to benefit the wealthy at the expense of everyone else.

“Arizonans will not sit idle while ideological Republicans continue to underfund education and damage their children's futures.

"The Arizona Legislature illustrated why we're known as the nation's meth lab of democracy. What a disgrace."
