Education costs more and more every year with less and less results to show for it. During Haigh’s time as a chair and member of Education and Education Appropriation and Oversight, education has suffered through unfunded mandates, lack of funding, and lack of success.
Dan Griffey fully supported ending unfunded mandates that hurt our schools. He supported Fund Education First, stating that it’s the Legislature’s job to fully fund education and that education gets the first dollar, not the last dollar.
Haigh said she wouldn’t cut from education, and then did exactly that.
It’s not about Republican vs. Democrat with Griffey. It’s about solutions. It’s time we fund education first. It’s time to put schools before party interest. It’s time to elect honest people.
