top-state-mid

ForwARd Arkansas is a partnership of parents, educators, civic leaders, business professionals and policy makers committed to helping every Arkansas student graduate prepared for success in college and the workplace. To realize this vision, we’ve gathered input from nearly 8,500 Arkansans across the state to help develop A New Vision for Arkansas Education. We believe these recommendations will help us dramatically improve student achievement, close the achievement gap and help Arkansas become a leading state in education.
