Tell lawmakers to support the Educators' Budget

Arizona has a budget surplus of $5.3 billion. The state has been underfunding our schools for decades and is facing a severe teacher shortage crisis. If we’re serious about getting every child the support they need to thrive, our elected leaders across the state need to address the educator shortage crisis now.

As the voice of 20,000 public school employees in Arizona, the AEA proposes the Educators’ Budget to recruit and retain quality educators and provide the support and resources our students need. Funding these priorities will demonstrate the value Arizona has for our educators and can be accomplished with the surplus. It’s time for a state budget that values educators and Arizona voters’ priorities.
