Arizona is as always struggling with test scores that can't compete nationally because of our high ELL population and inadequate state funding. Recently, Prop 100 sales tax increase passed and showed us that despite our worst fears, people were at least willing to pay a penny to help our schools. Many of us in schools with high Hispanic populations are watching to see what effect SB 1070 will have on our populations. Even if the federal case overturns it, some families have already fled the state.

Roll Call!
