Alabama's Amendment 1 and Education

Four of Alabama's top educators are urging voters to approve Amendment 1 in the election November 4th.

State Superintendent of Education Joe Morton, Two-Year College Chancellor Bradley Byrne, Auburn University President Jay Gogue, and University of Alabama system chancellor Malcolm Portera issued a joint statement Wednesday.

Amendment 1 would expand the state's rainy day fund for the education budget and create one for the general fund budget.

The rainy day fund would alleviate budget cuts when state tax collections fall below expectations.

The four educators say public education could be forced to take a backward step if Amendment 1 fails.
