All Arizona students deserve a world-class education – an education that recognizes their potential and challenges them to meet the highest of expectations.  By building a world-class education system in our state, not only do we prepare students for future success, but we also ensure a strong economic future for Arizona.

Working collectively with communities across our state, the Expect More Arizona movement is building engaged leadership and public commitment to ensure a world-class education system for all students.   Along with significant and diverse community input, we have identified the following five essential Building Blocks of a World-Class Education in Arizona, on which we can all agree.  Expect More Arizona works to raise public awareness, educate, advocate and mobilize Arizonans to support these Building Blocks.  Join us in building a movement of 1,000,000 Arizonans who support each Building Block and commit to making Arizona education the best in the nation.
