Arizona Students Are In A Race For The Best Jobs And Quality Of Life. Don’t Let Your Students Fall Behind.
The success of Arizona’s students, in competing in a knowledge-based global economy, is dependent upon the quality of education in our state. Although there are many successes to be celebrated, our students are falling behind their national and international peers in academic performance, high school graduation rates and postsecondary completion.
As an educator, you play a critical role in ensuring that Arizona’s children are receiving the highest quality education from birth to career and ensuring that they are ready for success in each stage of the education continuum. And in today’s global economy, this commitment to strengthen education is more important than ever.
Regardless of where you stand on Arizona’s rankings and performance, there’s no question that we need to do everything possible to ensure our students are graduating with the skills and knowledge necessary to compete, contribute and succeed in the 21st Century.
