Last Week This Morning: Invest in Ed kicked off the ballot…again

By Emily Kirkland

Invest in Ed kicked off the ballot. Again. Educators & public school supporters collected nearly 400,000 signatures in the middle of a pandemic. Then a judge booted the initiative from the ballot. The initiative plans to appeal.

“I’m sorry, but it’s a fantasy.” An Arizona school superintendent on the impossible position that schools have been left in.

The end of a lifeline. The $600 per week expanded unemployment benefits have expired, Republicans in the Senate are refusing to pass a full extension, and many Americans are running out of options.

Following the money. Another look at the flood of GOP-linked and corporate cash into this year’s Democratic legislative primaries.

“La Morena.” This new documentary, directed by Pita Juarez and benefitting Poder in Action, looks amazing. It premieres tomorrow on Vimeo — pre-order now!

Help flip the state legislature. Join Civic Engagement Beyond Voting for their phonebanking event later today!
