Expect More Arizona Concerned About Future School Funding

A Superior Court ruling that the Invest in Education petition description was misleading has angered many public education advocates and voters.

The ruling is going to be appealed to the Arizona Supreme Court, but this is an important time to figure out what the next step needs to be for adding money to Arizona’s K-12 system.

While most people seem to agree public schools need more funding, there is not a consensus about how to deliver it. Not all public education champions threw their weight behind Invest in Ed, for example.

Expect More Arizona has taken no stance one way or another on the initiative. The Show caught up with Erin Hart, Expect More Arizona chief operating officer, to talk about the ruling and the future of the education funding debate in general.
