PHOENIX, AZ – Stand for Children Arizona Executive Director Rebecca Gau issued the following statement in response to Governor Doug Ducey’s Executive Budget Overview:

“We believe Governor Ducey’s budget begins to address the education funding crisis. Though we are grateful this proposal acknowledges the need for investment in public education, we must begin to examine long-term solutions for Arizona’s reading crisis, a worsening teacher shortage, poor graduation rates, and low college enrollment rates. We must make sustainable education funding a priority and focus on raising educational attainment for all students - because they can’t afford to wait.”
