Clueless in Arizona - Doug Ducey Aims to Kill Schools

Stop this man
before he speaks again


Republican gubernatorial candidate Doug Ducey suffers from the malady of many wannabe rulers: magical thinking.

Inside his bubble, starving Arizona's schools will somehow help our children achieve at a higher level.

He wants voters to ignore this harsh fact: The Legislature cut $3 billion from our children's schools starting in 2007, a 24 percent reduction — one of the deepest in the nation when Arizona was already almost dead last in per pupil funding.

What did those cuts spawn? Arizona's teacher workforce shortage, super-sized classrooms, lack of state funding to buy basics like textbooks and school buildings falling into serious disrepair.
However, in Ducey's mind, educators have all the funding they need, and he must protect Arizonans from spending even one cent more on children's schools.
