Everything to Gain
. . . in our economy, in our workforce, in our communities and as individuals - when students continue their education after high school.
Arizonans must come together now to add the more than 500,000 degrees and certificates by 2030 to reach Arizona’s statewide attainment goal.
Getting there will require improvements throughout the PreK-20 education system to increase the college-going pipeline and will mean that Arizona adults also continue their education and training after high school.
It’s an ambitious but achievable goal—especially if we work together. And, Arizona has everything to gain from investing in education and training beyond high school.
Recent research from Helios Education Foundation and Education Forward Arizona shows that Arizonans who pursue education after high school experience higher lifetime earnings, better health, and more economic opportunities. Increasing higher education enrollment by just 20 percent per cohort could lead to more than $5 billion in economic gains for Arizona each year.
