David Garcia on Education
An experienced educator focusing on public schools
David is the one person most capable of tackling the crisis in Arizona's schools. Arizona is being held back because our state leadership is not committed to creating an excellent public education system. "Doug
Ducey's failed commitment to public education is hurting our economy," he says. To strengthen our schools, our next Governor needs not only expertise, but a teacher's commitment to education.

Vouchers hurt public schools
The new law allows up to 30,000 Arizona students to use state money for private schools instead of public schools, expanding the system that previously gave vouchers to kids who were disabled or lived in low-income districts. "Governor
Ducey landed the most devastating blow to public education in state history," Garcia said. "Make no mistake, [it] will drain hundreds of millions of dollars away from our public-school system."
