On Aug. 29, 2018 , Doug Ducey’s Supreme Court has just kicked the Invest in Education Act off the ballot in blatant disregard for the countless Arizonans who want a better future for their children. The Invest in Education Act sought to solve a school funding crisis that Doug Ducey has been unable - or unwilling - to fix.

Doug Ducey rigged the system against parents and teachers by packing the Court with radical judges who would do his bidding. That plan paid off today. Our students and educators are left with nothing. Voters have been stripped of the opportunity to approve a sustainable funding plan for our schools.

Ducey failed to act UNTIL 75,000 PEOPLE MARCHED ON THE CAPITOL DURING #REDFORED AND HE STILL FAILED TO MEET on responding to their demands for better classrooms and additional school funding. Educators and voters realized that this crisis was not going to be solved by our corrupt politicians and took matters into their own hands by collecting over 200,000 signatures to refer the Invest in Education Act to the ballot.



*************** ESPAÑOL ****************

El 29 de agosto de 2018 - La Corte Suprema de el Gobernador Doug Ducey acaba de dejar a la propuesta de ley #InvestInEd fuera de la boleta de votación; sin tomar encuenta o todos los arizonenses que quieren un futuro mejor para sus hijos.  La propuesta de ley #InvestInEd buscaba resolver una crisis de financiación escolar que Doug Ducey no ha podido, o no ha querido, solucionar.

Doug Ducey manipuló el sistema contra padres y maestros llenando la corte con jueces extremistas que harían su voluntad. Ese plan dio sus frutos hoy. Nuestros estudiantes y educadores se quedan sin nada. Y a los votantes de Arizona se les ha quitado la oportunidad de aprobar un plan de financiación sostenible para nuestras escuelas.

Ducey no actuó HASTA QUE 75,000 PERSONAS MARCHARON EN EL CAPITOLIO DURANTE #REDFORED Y AUN TODAVÍA ASI FALLÓ EN RESPONDER a sus demandas de mejores aulas y financiamiento escolar adicional. Los educadores y los votantes se dieron cuenta de que esta crisis no iba a ser resuelta por nuestros políticos corruptos y tomaron el asunto en sus propias manos reuniendo más de 200,000 firmas para referir la Ley de #InvestInEd  a la boleta electoral.
Ahora estamos pidiendo a TODOS LOS CANDIDATOS PARA LA OFICINA PÚBLICA y la Comunidad que esten dispuestos a asegurarse que nuestros niños y maestros obtengan los fondos que merecen que tomen el #InvestInEdPledge que dice:

"ME COMPROMETO A #InvestInEd

EN ESTAS ELECCIONES TRABAJARÉ PARA GARANTIZAR QUE UNA MEDIDA SE REFIERE A LOS VOTANTES QUE AUMENTARÁN LOS INGRESOS PARA FINANCIAR COMPLETAMENTE A NUESTRAS ESCUELAS PÚBLICAS, SOLICITANDO A QUIENES PUEDEN PAGAR SU PARTICIPACIÓN JUSTA.

FIRMADO,
[SU NOMBRE]"
