Letter: Huppenthal’s money plea off base

Arizona Superintendent of Public Instruction John Huppenthal recently made an impassioned plea to the House Education Committee to give him $35 million for the creation of a new computer system for the Department of Education. As a K-12 educator for more than 40 years, I only wish that his plea was for something that would actually help students.

Money for reading, math or other academic programs comes to mind. Or, perhaps, funds for something as basic as making sure that every K-12 school in the state has enough paper so that parent-teacher organizations, like those at Kyrene, don’t have to beg parents to donate reams of paper to their child’s school.
