LWVAZ has endorsed the referendum being conducted by Save Our Schools (SOS) to try to stop the implementation of the Empowerment Scholarship Account (voucher) expansion bill passed the AZ legislature during the last session. LWVAZ lobbied against SB1431, which takes money out of public schools that are already underfunded and provides for very little oversight in terms of the “public funds” provided to parents for the education of their children.
