Save Ochoa school from TUSD managers' axe

TUSD board President Alex Rodriguez

TUCSON -- People are fighting an idea by TUSD managers to close Ochoa Elementary and other schools, and I'm on their side.

Ochoa is an important and appreciated school for kids in my south downtown neighborhood, and it should be kept open. I cannot support increasing class size and closing neighborhood schools.

TUSD must cut waste elsewhere, including more from administration, not close schools. The State Legislature must step up and better support Arizona's public schools, so these closures may be avoided.

Let the TUSD board know you want schools kept open: governingboard@tusd1.org
