Create Statewide Policy and Funding Conditions

Forward works to transform Arkansas’s Pre-K to 12 education system by accelerating equity and progress through its work with state leaders and policymakers to create funding and policy conditions that provide all students with transformative learning experiences.

Forward serves as a resource and informs strategies and policies that enable innovations and align with needs of students, families and educators. We utilize data, research, and what we learn through our work on the ground to influence policy decisions that remove barriers and  advance effective, student centered solutions
