We recommend a “NO” vote on all public school over-rides, including Mesa’s.
There is a mistaken notion that any and all spending on education improves education. That is completely false.
Public schools never have enough money and continue to increase spending. The money raised from over-rides literally disappears into the bricks and concrete of the school structures and doesn’t improve the quality of education.
The one thing that will truly benefit public education in Arizona and America is education reform. We need to start with a different worldview governing the schools. The humanistic/evolutionary/socialist/politically correct school of modern America is flawed and failing. We need an overhaul of the school boards throughout the state and nation. Today’s educators cannot themselves successfully negotiate primers from the 1890s. The colleges of education at the University of Arizona, Arizona State University, and Northern Arizona are not producing quality teachers who can truly prepare students for college and the work force. These universities also suffer from bad worldview, which is imparted on education students.
Along with a change of worldview, citizens like you must demand a complete removal of Common Core.
No wonder that many industries are down on Arizona’s public education system. No wonder we have low information voters. The schools are failing us, yet they keep taking more and more of our money.
The over-ride mania that instills fear into politicians and groupthink across the land is hindering education — not helping it.
Vote “NO” as a matter of routine on all over-rides.
Demand true education reform.
