ADP Statement on Court’s Decision on Prop 208 and AZGOP’s Failure to Listen to Voters

PHOENIX – Following the decision of the Maricopa County Superior Court on Proposition 208, Arizona Democratic Party Chair Raquel Terán issued the following statement:

“To the educators who led the Red for Ed movement and those who supported them – we are with you. When teachers, parents, and community allies came together, they were fighting for the children of Arizona. They had a radical belief that every child in our state deserves to reach their maximum potential with world-class education in our home state. Your labor and sacrifice with Prop 208 was a promise for a better future for your students – our children.

Today’s court decision to strike down voter-approved Prop 208 is a blow to the majority of Arizona voters who fought for desperately-needed funding of our schools. After years of underfunding our schools, Republicans spent millions of dollars on a smear campaign against Prop 208 that failed thanks to the thousands of educators, parents, and community allies who took their case directly to the people of Arizona.

While Republicans are taking a victory lap over today’s court decision, the people of Arizona won’t forget GOP legislators cheering the fact that the voters’ clear priorities have been overturned.”
