2024 Advocacy Priorities

Education Forward Arizona champions efforts that advance education attainment, P-20. We use our voice and mobilize the community to take action to support priority issues that will help the state increase education attainment and meet the goals in the Arizona Education Progress Meter.


Action Center

The Education Forward Arizona Action Center is where education champions can join us as we advocate for policies and funding that advance education attainment, with a P-20 perspective, and give every student a fair shot to succeed.


Arizona’s Education Priorities

Education Forward Arizona conducted a poll of Arizona voters to better understand voters’ priorities for education. The survey complements and is intended to go deeper on the findings in the Arizona Voters’ Agenda, in coordination with the Center for the Future of Arizona. What we found is that Arizonans deeply care most about the issues that will support good teaching and learning, not the political hot button issues that often get the most attention. Voters want to see candidates discussing key education issues, many of which are aligned with meeting the Arizona Education Progress Meter and Achieve60AZ attainment goals.
