Expect More Arizona and our partners believe all Arizona children deserve a world-class education, which gives them the opportunity to succeed in life. To ensure a strong economic future for Arizona and a higher quality of life for everyone, we have to make education a top priority in our state. In Arizona, we are fortunate to have many bright spots and countless dedicated educators. But they can’t do it alone. Everyone has a role to play. That’s why we’ve joined with thousands of concerned individuals and organizations to build a movement dedicated to a shared vision of world-class education for all children.
A Shared Vision for Arizona Education
A world-class education system is one in which every Arizona child, regardless of background, income, or zip code, is able to:
- Access high-quality early learning that prepares him/her for Kindergarten
- Read proficiently by the 3rd grade
- Graduate from high school ready for college or career
- Attain a college degree and/or certificate or industry credential
To make this vision a reality in Arizona, Expect More Arizona and our partners commit to these five building blocks:
Achieve – Commit to high expectations that prepare all children to attain a college degree and/or certificate or an industry credential.
Close the Gap – Ensure that all children have the opportunity to succeed, regardless of their background, income, or zip code.
Innovate – Nurture the creativity, critical thinking and problem solving skills that children need for the jobs of the future.
Invest – Fund education, early years through career, to help all children achieve and to make Arizona home to the best educators in the nation.
Work together – Make education a top priority and take action to support education in our local communities.
