Education and workforce training are among the strongest long-term investments that Arizona can make in its people.
Education and workforce training are critical to lifting Arizonans out of poverty. From preschool, to K-12, to college and adult learning programs, investing in public education has the potential to increase socioeconomic mobility and address growing inequality. At the Arizona Center for Economic Progress, we promote affordable, quality, and equitable funding for all learners. We advocate that investing in people through education propels Arizona’s economy forward with a skilled and diverse workforce to attract, grow, and retain industries and jobs.
