Actions violate students’ right to education
Watch Timothy Sandefur, VP for Litigation at the Goldwater institute:
This is the letter Sandefur sent Friday to school district superintendents throughout the state of Arizona, advising them of their constitutional obligation and consequences of failure to comply.
School closures occurred Thursday and Friday and are threatened to continue on Monday in conjunction with the illegal teacher strike. More than 800,000 students are being deprived of their constitutional right to an education.
Seeing Red AZ hopes the Goldwater Institute moves forward and prevails against the extremist, thuggish tactics of the now emboldened, overwhelmingly leftist teachers unions and their dues paying members.
It is never a wise policy to negotiate with, or capitulate to, terrorists. The #REDSforED thugs fall into that category. Gov. Doug Ducey, more interested in his future political aspirations than doing what’s right, has shown himself to be weak and ineffective by acquiescing to their demands. As they’ve upped the ante from a hefty 20% raise to launching a ballot measure put together by the radical, Chicago-based Center for Economic Progress, to “tax the rich,’ their socialist agenda is clear.
Know this: It’s not about “the children.”
