Arizona lags most U.S. states in the quality of its public schools as evidenced by the following facts:
Arizona's public school graduates are therefore often ill-prepared for a post-secondary education and careers.
In contrast to the state of public education, the American Legislative Council ranked Arizona's economic outlook #5 among U.S. states. This anomalous situation has created a workforce readiness gap: Arizona's high school graduates are poorly positioned to capitalize on the burgeoning local job market, compared with the majority of their national counterparts. Students' prospects for securing these jobs are even more dire among Arizona's Title 1 schools, as a large percentage of these students live at or near poverty.
