TUSD budget override fails

Posted: Updated:

Election Night was not a good one for many local school districts. Most budget override elections failed, including one for the Tucson Unified School District. Had Proposition 403 passed, people living in the district would have had to fork over an extra $127 each year. It's a tough thing to ask for in today's economy, and district officials say the students are the ones who will suffer.

Arizona ranks 49th in the nation in education funding, and Dr. Fagan points to that as one of TUSD's challenges.
