When Our Kids Graduate Prepared, They Achieve Greatness
As Arizonans, we want our state to be a great place to live, work and raise a family. A strong education system doesn’t just benefit students, it improves the quality of life for everyone.
The world is changing rapidly every day. The jobs our children will have may not even exist today. To strengthen the economy and prepare for the future, we need to give all children an education that helps them become critical thinkers, problem solvers and life-long learners, from their earliest years through their first jobs and beyond.
A world-class education gives every child in Arizona the tools to succeed in school and in life, regardless of background, income or zip code. The path to excellence requires students who are motivated and ready to learn, involved parents, trained and committed educators, informed and engaged voters, and capable and supportive elected officials. In other words, it takes all of us.
Expect More Arizona fosters a shared voice and collaborative action among partners statewide to advocate for all Arizona students to have the opportunity to succeed, from their early years and throughout life. We’re working with our partners to ensure:
