Support the Educators’ Budget for Teacher Appreciation Week


Next week is National Teacher Appreciation Week! To show your appreciation and keep great teachers in the classroom in Arizona, sign on to support the Educators’ Budget!

Arizona has a budget surplus of $5.3 Billion, and legislators don’t appear to be any closer to agreement on a state budget. AEA has created the Educators’ Budget that addresses the teacher shortage and makes voters interests in public education a priority. Read the Educators’ Budget >>
