Governor’s Classrooms First Initiative Council Needs More Time

| December 7, 2015

The Governor’s Classrooms First Initiative Council, which is working to revise Arizona’s K-12 funding formula, held what was originally intended to be its final meeting on December 2.

Instead, Council members presented 17 findings to Governor Ducey, the last of which was a request for an extension of 6 to 9 months to complete their work. The request was granted.

Expect More Arizona appreciates that both the Council and Governor Ducey recognize the magnitude of the issues related to K-12 education funding and desire to be thoughtful and thorough.

Read this full article and several highlights among the Council’s summary of findings here.

Expect More Arizona looks forward to continuing to work with the Council to ensure every child receives a world-class education and to engage Arizona parents, voters, and educators in sharing their perspective.
