Helios Education Foundation issued the following statement in response to Governor Ducey’s State of the State Address:
“Helios applauds Governor Ducey for elevating the critical importance of improving our education system and making the commitment to increase K-12 investment, above inflation, every year throughout his governorship. His willingness to visit schools across the state and gain firsthand knowledge of the needs our students and schools face is to be commended and expressed in the items outlined today.
Investments that span the early education through postsecondary continuum such as the areas mentioned -- early literacy, teacher and principal recruitment and retention, College Knowing and Going, and Achieve60Az -- all work to ensure Arizona's students are prepared for success in college, career, and life.
We stand united with the Governor in sharing the belief that every student, regardless of zip code, deserves a high quality education. Education changes lives and strengthens communities and we will be successful together.”
