We need to get a handle on our education system. Approximately $9,000 is allocated to each student in Arizona and only approximately $3,000 of those dollars is spent in the classroom (i.e. teacher's salaries).

With over 200 school districts, there clearly is a tremendous amount of overhead that needs to be delimited and, once eliminated, more money will be available to go where it belongs, to the teachers.
