As school starts up again, public education remains under attack across the nation. In Arizona, for example, the State Supreme Court has taken the unprecedented step of removing an Invest In ED ballot measure from the November ballot. Invest In ED would have provided millions of Arizona students with a sustainable revenue source that would provide resources students need to learn. This measure would have provided crucial education funding that everyone in Arizona agrees is needed.
In order to qualify for the ballot, thousands of educators across the state worked tirelessly all summer to collect 270,000 signatures to qualify the Invest In ED act to the ballot. In a purely political move the Arizona Supreme Court overturned the lower court decision. The Arizona Supreme Court is stacked with anti-public education justice appointees doing the bidding of Governor Doug Ducey who has failed to take action to increase needed education funding in Arizona for years.
In solidarity, AEA is requesting state affiliates and other national labor allies that Tuesday, Sept. 4 be observed as a national #RedForEd day. This day of solidarity is in reaction to the unprecedented decision by the Arizona supreme court robbing Arizonans of the opportunity to vote for critical funding for our classrooms and investing in our educators. AEA is asking everyone to wear red and post pictures to social media with a simple “We stand in solidarity with Arizona educators” and #RedForEd and #InvestInEd hashtags.
Please join AEA and NJEA in standing in solidarity for educators in Arizona and everywhere because our students and educators deserve better.

In less than 12 days New Jersey Legislators must present Governor Murphy with a balanced budget or shut down the state government. Whether their budget is balanced on fairness or the backs of working families will depend on the actions we take today. Please take a moment to email your legislators and urge them to include SUSTAINABLE and FAIR Revenue choices in the FY2019 Budget. These include: Restoration of the Millionaires Tax, Reinstatement of the Sales Tax to 7%, Closing Tax Loopholes and Restoring tax fairness in our state.
