Phoenix Students Deserve the Opportunity to Succeed.


Arizona spends less per student that any other state in the nation. Our state leaders have cut education to the bone.*

The Phoenix Union Override will grant our students vital resources to thrive in underfunded schools and beyond.

Education is about creating opportunity. By providing upgraded classroom technology, vocational classes and teacher training, the Phoenix Union Override invests in students and equips them with the tools they need for the 21st century economy. Our students will flourish with greater opportunities.


Here’s how the override will help our schools

  • Hire, train and retain quality classroom teachers
  • Upgrade classroom technology and enhance science classrooms and labs to help prepare students for high-tech jobs
  • Improve vocational education and teacher job training
  • Update school safety equipment like fire alarms, smoke detectors and sprinklers
  • Make all Phoenix Union high schools handicap accessible as required by law




Phoenix elected, business and community leaders support the Phoenix Union Override because they know we need strong schools to keep our city strong:
