I am a parent, a taxpayer, I vote, and for my third career I teach in a public high school.
I am all for parents having the right to send their children to the school of their choice.
I agree that if the legislature wants to give people or corporations a dollar for dollar break on their taxes then so be it. However, I do not agree with the following.
If people or corporations get a dollar for dollar tax credit of $500 or $1000.00 then those that donate to public schools should be afforded the same amount. Currently individuals can donate $200.00 and couples $400.00 for extracurricular activities only.
I believe that the private schools should be held to the same Common Core Curriculum Standards and assessments that public schools are held to.,
I also believe that if a legislator is involved in one of the private schools he/she should step down from any committee that votes on bills affecting private schools
My experience with Collective bargaining for public school employees in Arizona is a joke, school districts put an offer on the table if employees do not accept it the school district finds new employees. There is no need to legislate collective bargaining in Arizona public schools.
