PTA opposed to Proposition 305

Arizona PTA is the largest child advocacy association in the state, and we are against the statewide expansion of school vouchers and against Proposition 305. We simply do not support the use of public funds for private education.

Special interest groups have tried to make vouchers and school choice synonymous. They are not the same. Arizona’s families have had school choice for years. ESA vouchers are the removal of public funds and funneled toward private education. Public funds are meant for public schools; not funneled to schools that are not transparent nor held accountable to anyone to allow people who can well afford private education from paying their fair share. Most of these schools don’t have to accept students with special needs and discriminate against students based on race, creed, sexual orientation and more.

Proposition 305 is an initiative that takes desperately needed funds away from our public schools. Arizonans deserve fully funded public schools, quality teachers and curriculum that makes sense. It robs funding from the choice that 90 percent of Arizonans make to educate their children — public schools. Please join parents, teachers and community members in speaking for every child with one voice and say No on Prop 305.
