More about Everything to Gain and the Achieve60AZ Goal

Arizona has an ambitious goal to reach 60 percent education attainment by the year 2030 – commonly known as the Achieve60AZ goal.

Reaching this goal will mean that 60 percent of the state’s population of working adults will have a certificate, license, or degree—contributing to a greater average quality of life for all Arizonans.

Last year, Education Forward Arizona launched Everything to Gain, a statewide campaign focused on increasing awareness around the importance of postsecondary education for Arizonans. 

To maximize the effectiveness of the effort and better coordinate messaging among all partners, Education Forward Arizona commissioned this unique poll of Arizona voters across the state to gauge their perceptions and attitudes on postsecondary attainment.
