Re: “With Prop 123 Hanging in the Balance, the Push For Education Funding Begins. #nowitstarts

I opposed Prop 123 but am alarmed by many of the comments above. I know David Safier & while we were on opposite sides of Prop 123, he is a thoughtful & passionate supporter of public education, which I am too. I have linked to the statement put out by the No Prop 123 committee which proudly points out what success we achieved for our efforts & what we should do in the future. I urge all of us who opposed Prop 123 to read the statement because I think it gives us reasons to be hopeful for the future.…

Re: “Prop 123 Hanging on by a Thread

The "wide public support" was from political elites not from ordinary citizens as the vote totals prove.

Re: “Something Pro-Education-Funding Folks Agree on, Whether They're For or Against Prop 123

Nice article Dave. I appreciate the chart which shows that in 1964 when I was in grade school in Phoenix, Arizona did a good job funding public education. We owe it to our kids to give them the same chance I had as a child. Whatever the outcome on Tuesday, I will support efforts to support public education better than we have recently.

Re: “Yet Another Reason for the Current Teacher Shortage?

David, I think your comments make a lot of sense. Who wants to relive a bad experience? For those who enjoyed their school years, I think low pay is definitely a cause of the teacher shortage in Arizona. My daughter, Marie, had a great high school experience at CDO in Oro Valley. She went on to become a high school history teacher, but not in Tucson. Rather she moved to Omaha Neb., which pays its teachers 33% more than in Arizona. She's been there only 2 years but is closing on a home this month. She's willing to put up with midwestern winters, so she can happily live a middle class dream. I don't blame her.
