Doors Don’t Lock, Ceiling Tiles Leak

Rachael, a Tucson area teacher, shared two stories from her school about capital funding needs. The first is that there are doors that don’t lock at her school, so in a lockdown, students move classrooms. She has to take in 30 plus additional students into her already crowded classroom. Second, the gym floor at her school is so worn that they had to give up the travel rule in basketball. The kids get two extra steps at her school. Rachael wants lawmakers to understand the importance of basic funding, of having doors that lock, gym floors that aren’t so worn you can’t have a travel rule, and ceiling tiles and roofs and plumbing that doesn’t leak.
