In her own words:
Arizona needs to protect and increase funding for the entire ecosystem of education, from teachers, to textbooks, technology, support staff, and capital needs. Not only for our K-12 schools, but we should include Pre-K, public universities, and community colleges in the discussion as well. Until we address the funding issue nothing is going to have a substantial impact on education in Arizona.
