Arizona torn on school funding-related Proposition 204

In November, Arizonans will have the ability to vote on Proposition 204, which would make a temporary one-cent sales tax increase earmarked for education permanent.

Prop 204 comes on the back of Proposition 100, the one-cent sales tax that is set to expire in 2013. Arizona voters originally approved Prop 100 to lessen the impacts of education cuts made by the state.

“The results of these cuts have meant much larger class sizes, all-day kindergarten funding was cut by the state,” Ann Eve Pedersen, President of the Arizona Education Network and proponent of Prop 204, told News/Talk 92.3 KTAR’s Karie & Chuck on Friday.
