Achieve60AZ releases Arizona’s Public Service Promise report

| April 4, 2021
Arizona has set a lofty goal: By 2030, 60 percent of adults in the state, ages 25 to 64, will hold a postsecondary credential or degree. This statewide goal to achieve a more highly trained and educated population ensures a brighter future for Arizona and for all of us. To get there, we must think outside of the traditional pathways to attainment.
A new issue brief, Arizona’s Public Service Promise, highlights the importance of engaging and supporting adults over age 24 to earn postsecondary credentials. As the brief outlines, one of the most effective ways to connect with Arizona adults is through their employer. For approximately 300,000 adults in Arizona that employer is a public entity.
The brief presents a best-in-class Public Service Promise Policy, based on an analysis of existing policies from partners across the state. This Arizona Public Service Promise brief also offers tools, policy templates, communications materials, and research to galvanize action so that public employers can lead in postsecondary attainment.
Read the full brief here.
Achieve60AZ, College Success Arizona and Expect More Arizona have pooled their resources and teams to become one organization. The enhanced organization, which will be renamed later this year, will advance a cohesive education agenda to reach the goals outlined in the Arizona Education Progress Meter and support the success of all Arizona children and adults along the education continuum, from early learning through postsecondary attainment.
