Our members believe a quality P-20 education system is essential for Arizona’s success, affecting both quality of life and economic vitality. A well-educated workforce attracts business and new job opportunities across industries.

Together with a large group of stakeholders, including business, elected officials, community members and education related organizations, GPL works for all Arizonans to have access to a strong education system. Along with our partners, GPL designed a P-20 educational architecture that includes school readiness, K-12, higher education and workforce development.

Partnership is critical to success. GPL supports the work of groups such as Expect More Arizona and the widely-supported Progress Meter with indicators to track progress in important educational metrics. GPL is also supportive of Achieve 60 AZ and their goal of having 60% of adults earn a professional certificate or college degree by 2030.
