Election 2006: Ballot Initiatives
Politicians weren’t the only ones being voted on yesterday. Election day also found voters casting ballots for and against a number of education initiatives--from Arizona where voters decided to increase the tobacco tax to fund education, to Nebraska where voters gave the nod to an early childhood education endowment fund. At NCLBlog, the American Federation of Teachers’ site, there’s a discussion of some of the ballot initiatives and how they shook out. There’s also this primer, put out by the Education Commission of the States, which methodically summarizes and updates the results of each state’s education-related ballot questions.
