PHOENIX, AZ – Stand for Children Arizona Executive Director Rebecca Gau issued the following statement after the English Language Learners (HB 2435) bill failed to get a vote for passage:

“We are deeply saddened by the inaction to get an up or down vote on the bipartisan ELL bill. We won’t lose heart, and we will continue to fight to help the 83,000 students who are falling behind. This underscores why we need to elect education champions who will put students first, regardless of political party.”
