From Awareness to Action

Expect More Arizona was created in 2009 by a group of business and community leaders interested in establishing a public-private partnership to make Arizona’s education system the best it can be – from early years through career – and creating a shared voice to support education as a top priority for our state.

What began as a public awareness campaign to elevate the importance of education as a key driver for Arizona’s economy has grown into a statewide nonpartisan education advocacy organization working together with thousands of individuals and organizations to support a world-class education for every Arizona child.

Today, we are working on a regular basis in over 30 cities and towns to build an education-first culture and creating opportunities for all Arizonans to effect change for students in their homes, local communities and statewide.
