PHOENIX, AZ – Today, Arizona Parents for Education, released the third in a series of questions we as parents want answered by both Fred DuVal and Doug Ducey. On Sunday, September 28th, there will be an Education Debate and we expect every candidate for Governor to answer these questions. We urge members of the media to consider these issues as you prepare to question the candidates.
- Innovation is lacking in the American school system. In fact, the OECD 2014 analysis found that the United States lagged behind nearly every other country in the world for educational innovation. Please tell us three ideas you have to bring innovation back to our schools.
- What is your plan to change the culture of Arizona schools to promote high achievement?
- Too often the school choice movement is now focused on the needs of bureaucrats and not parents. Will you pledge to trust parents as the cornerstone of all your decisions in public education and protect parental choice?
