Improving education is the fundamental driver of a more robust Arizona workforce and economy, and is our best lever for improving the quality of life for all Arizonans.
Education Forward Arizona develops and scales innovative programs that support low-income and students of color, focused on meeting the goals in the Arizona Education Progress Meter and closing achievement gaps.
To move Arizona forward, we must move education forward. This starts with early learning. In fact, quality early learning opportunities set children on a path to success, preparing them for Kindergarten and success in the early grades.
A postsecondary education can be transformative. Earning a certificate or degree opens doors to personal and professional opportunities and greater economic and social mobility. Education Forward Arizona is working to lead efforts directly and in partnership with the community that will help Arizona reach the Achieve60AZ attainment goal. You can learn more on our attainment page.
Students, families and educators need the best tools to ensure students throughout their K-12 experience are on the path to becoming college and career ready.
