It is a movement started by teachers, education support professionals, administrators and others in the community who care about the state of education in Arizona.
The goal is to ensure that all students have access to highly qualified and experienced teachers, that educators are compensated fairly, and to improve the educational environment in the state of Arizona.
The Crisis in Arizona:
There is an unprecedented teacher shortage.
We have the second-largest median class size in the U.S.
We are near the bottom in per-pupil spending.
We have the worst counselor-to-student ration in the country
We have endured the largest education funding cuts in the nation
What do the teachers want?
20% raise for teaching and certified staff
Competitive wages for classified staff
Restore overallK-12 funding to 2008 levens
No new tax cuts until per-pupil spending reaches national average
Annual raises until teacher salaries reach national average.

I first started learning about the piano when I was 3 years old with Ms. Tina Estes. But I took some time away for 2 years and now i’m starting back again. I have a new piano teacher called Mr. James Rhodes. Follow along as I practice and learn a new skill.
I don’t know how you new babies do it. When I used to hang out in my crib, I always knew how to get my daddy’s attention. He always thought it was because he left the room but I just wanted to chew on his phone.
My Teachers are very special,
I am thankful for each and every one of them. I’ve been in Kindergarten for 1/2 a year and I Love it. You have made my time at school fun and educational.
