Forward Arkansas puts brighter futures within reach.

All Arkansas students deserve the opportunity to thrive in school. Build fulfilling careers. Pursue their dreams. We work to help make it happen.

Forward Arkansas works with key stakeholders statewide to establish a shared vision for education in Arkansas. We partner with state and district leaders, educators and communities to lead our state toward a future education system that is equitable, student-centered and prepares all students for success in life and career.

We focus on three priorities to achieve our vision for all Arkansas students:

Transforming Student Learning
Building Educator Capacity

Creating Equitable Policy and Funding Conditions
