Make education in Arizona a top priority.

You’ve seen the stories about education in Arizona; you’ve probably written and produced many of them. While there are countless examples of excellence in education in every corner of our great state, we know we can do better.

We need transformational change that opens the door to opportunities for every child, and ensures a highly skilled workforce far into the future. We must make sure all Arizona students receive the support they need to graduate from high school on time, and prepare them to compete with their national and international peers in academic performance and postsecondary degree attainment.

More and more, our statewide dialogue focuses on a small handful of hot-button issues. Many of these issues are important to Arizonans and our state, but tend to overshadow the significant challenges facing Arizona schools. At Expect More Arizona, we aim to increase the public dialogue dedicated to raising awareness of education issues and working toward solutions.

As members of Arizona’s media, you are key drivers of our statewide dialogue, impacting which issues and stories are a priority in our state. We believe fostering a productive, open-minded conversation throughout our communities is essential to our coming together as a state to improve education.

We humbly ask for your help in advancing this conversation and making education Arizona’s top priority.
