Future of Education in Arizona-Ken bennett Candidate For AZ Governor

Ken Bennett for Governor

With yesterday’s news that Arizona must immediately increase its funding for schools by more than $300 million, it’s imperative our next Governor have the experience to successfully navigate the stormy fiscal seas ahead.  
That’s why next Tuesday’s Primary Election is so important.  Your vote will have a direct impact on the state’s education system and fiscal future.
Huge debates have raged for years about how much, or little, Arizona spends on education.  
While more than half of the state’s budget is directly dedicated to education, most reports show our state near the bottom in the amount of spending per K-12 student.  
During my four years as Senate President, I fought for more than $1 billion in new funding for education.  The highest four-year increase in state history.  
If the Copper State is to become the place we all want it to be, we must do a better job educating our children and keeping our financial commitment to our schools.
On Tuesday, you can make that happen by electing a proven leader who will strengthen standards, support teachers, protect choice and improve accountability.  
I will be that Governor.
