Connections Spotlight — Education Forward Arizona — AZ Voters Prioritize Education Over Politics

Education Forward Arizona conducted a poll of Arizona voters to better understand voters’ priorities for education. The survey complements and is intended to go deeper on the findings in the Arizona Voters’ Agenda, in coordination with the Center for the Future of Arizona. The survey was conducted May 10-17, 2022 by HighGround Public Affairs on behalf of Education Forward Arizona, a statewide nonprofit and nonpartisan organization. 

What we found is that Arizonans deeply care most about the issues that will support good teaching and learning, not the political hot button issues that often get the most attention. Voters want to see candidates discussing key education issues, many of which are aligned with meeting the Arizona Education Progress Meter and Achieve60AZ attainment goals.

Arizona Education Association Legislative Update — Join us at the Capitol on May 31

On May 31, 2022, educators and community members are coming together to urge legislators to use the $5.3 billion to invest in public education. AEA and local affiliates are hosting events at the state capitol and in Flagstaff, Sierra Vista, and Tucson to ask for support for the Educators’ Budget.

Watch Video Update from AEA President-elect Marisol Garcia >>

State lawmakers have until July 1 to pass a state budget. So far, their efforts have failed, including their attempt at passing the so-called “skinny budget,” which would continue last year’s budget and leave $5.3 billion on the table.

The time is now to turn up the heat on our elected officials to solve the teacher shortage crisis and ensure every child has a caring and qualified teacher in the classroom. Join us at the Capitol on May 31.

Children’s Action Alliance — Operation: Affordable Healthcare

Any toddler will tell you that a band-aid can fix most problems – but really big boo-boos need really big solutions. That’s why we’re launching Operation: Affordable Healthcare, a campaign to help heal the American healthcare system. The mission? Access to affordable, high-quality healthcare for all. 

The Operation: Affordable Healthcare policy plan will expand access to care, empower consumers, and promote health equity in Arizona and beyond. By reinforcing the foundation laid by the Affordable Care Act, Families First Coronavirus Response Act, and American Rescue Plan Act, we can start to fix what’s broken in the U.S. healthcare system. 

We’re calling on Arizona Senators Kelly and Sinema to take bold steps to promote access to affordable care.
