As the 2015 legislative session is about to end, this is the last and most crucial chance for the public to demand that our legislators do not continue on the wrongful path of diminishing and diverting state tax dollars away from the schools that serve our most disadvantaged students of poverty.

As this state has now set the highest education standards in the country and is again engrossed in trying to decide which state testing option is the best and most economical, it continues to ignore the most important question for education: What do we do when students haven’t learned what they are supposed to learn? This should be the most important question but nevertheless is the most ignored. The main reason for this is that the state has determined — incorrectly — that the solution for students not learning is to follow the path of school choice through vouchers and charters.
