Arizona K-12 School Finance Statistics: Why does Arizona Rank #49 in Per Pupil Spending?
You’ve heard that Arizona ranks 49 in per pupil K-12 spending. On its face, it sounds disgraceful. But that doesn’t mean it’s causal to education outcomes. It also doesn’t mean that Arizona is stingy. There is much more to the story. The Arizona Tax Research Association (ATRA) has put together a 9-page document titled Arizona K-12 School Finance Statistics: Providing Context to a Complex Measurement, that provides factual information relating to the reasons and fallacies surrounding the commonly argued narrative that Arizona doesn’t fund K-12 education adequately.

(See Payson Schools facing Tough Competition.) Arizona’s news editors don’t want you to know the "rest of the story," if it doesn’t fit their Leftist world view. What are the facts?

Please attend tonight’s Arizona Red Mountain Patriots Meeting!
Do you recall the Medicaid Expansion vote, and how so-called Arizona Republican senators and representatives joined Democrats to pass this law in the legislature? Remember Bob Worsley LD25, who voted for the Medicaid expansion, and how he ran as a conservative, even Pro Life? Voters in LD25 were outraged by Mr. Worsley’s "Big Government" votes. His Legislative District leadership even voted to censure him over his actions.
"In just ONE legislative session, Mr. Worsley, raised taxes, voted for Obama-care (the Medicaid expansion) violated Prop 108 (the Taxpayer Protection act), voted against Pro-Life Amendments, voted for taxpayer funded scholarships for illegals (which is also a violation of the law), and he scored the worst of any Republican Senator from Americans for Prosperity–earning the Hero of Big Government award."
Go to www.GilbertWatch.com, enter Worsley in the Search box, and you will see why it’s no surprise that Bob Worsley behaved exactly the way we predicted he would.
Dr. Ralph Heap to run against Bob Worsley in LD25.
An excellent conservative candidate has emerged to run against Bob Worsley in 2014: Dr. Ralph Heap.
“I think Mr. Worsley campaigned as a conservative, and I just don’t feel like he’s responded that way in his time in the Senate,” stated Dr. Heap. “I’m an orthopedic surgeon. I’m particularly disturbed by the Medicaid expansion and the facilitating of Obamacare in Arizona.”
Dr. Heap received his M.D. from the University of Arizona College of Medicine in 1978, and has been practicing for 30 years.
Please come to tonight’s meeting of the Arizona Red Mountain Patriots and meet Dr. Ralph Heap! Tonight’s event is essentially his campaign kickoff, so he’ll have petitions there, campaign literature, etc. Also, the Heap Family Blue Grass Band will be entertaining the audience as well.
