Penultimate Gubernatorial Debate Tonight

Posted By on Mon, Sep 29, 2014 at 3:00 PM

Last night, Republican Doug Ducey and Democrat Fred DuVal met for a debate on education. The Arizona Republic rounds up the basic differences between the candidates here (and there are a lot of differences).

One key split between the candidates: Ducey wants to allow more state tax dollars to fund private schools:


Ducey said he supports allowing students at failing schools to use the per-student assistance the state provides at a private school of their choice.

DuVal opposes the idea, saying the answer is to improve the failing schools. Arizona already has laws on the books to do just that, such as by allowing outside entities to come in and run poorly performing schools.

The penultimate gubernatorial debate, sponsored by Clean Elections, is tonight. It will air on KAET-TV, the Phoenix PBS affiliate, from 5 to 6 p.m.
