Moving Forward: Education and Workforce Development 

Only 46% of adults in Arizona have attained higher education, but in just a few years the overwhelming majority of jobs will require education beyond high school. On top of that, the pandemic presents challenges the state has yet to fully realize. However, these challenges also mean Arizona has the opportunity to not just limp through the pandemic, but to truly help students and teachers recover and thrive. Join Education Forward Arizona and the Arizona Capitol Times in a discussion with state leaders from early education, K-12 education and postsecondary education about what it would take to move our state’s education system forward. Register below – it’s free to attend!

Date: Tuesday, Oct. 12, 2021 from 8 a.m. – 9 a.m.
