Former Pima County Supervisor Dan Eckstrom
TUCSON -- As a pro-education family man with a daughter in TUSD, I appreciate Dan Eckstrom and other leaders fighting to keep neighborhood schools like Ochoa elementary open.
Ochoa is an important school for kids in my south side neighborhood, and it should be kept open. Instead of closing neighborhood schools and increasing class size, TUSD should cut waste from administrative bureaucracy and non-educational programs.
Our future depends on the Arizona Legislature acting more responsibly to better fund public schools.
