In the journey of achieving Educational Equity in Arizona, several organizations are working hard for the students of the Grand Canyon State. A new group has emerged to help forward this mission – Education Forward Arizona. While the look may be new, Education Forward Arizona is backed by a team of experienced and familiar faces in education. Education Forward Arizona brings together the teams, resources, and drive of three different entities. Achieve60AZ, College Success Arizona, and Expect More Arizona have come together to help build a brighter future in Arizona.
“The launch of Education Forward Arizona is a tremendously exciting opportunity to catapult our statewide education alliance into a more seamless collaborative system to further enhance and improve education in Arizona. NAU Arizona GEAR UP wholeheartedly supports this statewide partnership to help address low expectations and attainment levels in our state schools, especially high-poverty schools, to provide greater and more equitable opportunities for students from low-income communities to prepare, get into and succeed in higher education.”
Director, Arizona GEAR UP
Arizona GEAR UP has been a proud partner with all three organizations and we look forward to continuing our partnership with Education Forward Arizona. For more information, please visit the Education Forward Arizona website.
