Arizona's new education plan was developed by the P-20 Education Council, with statewide input and support from educators, business leaders and community organizations. This plan places power in the hands of parents. It instills yearly benchmarks that will put Arizona on the path to achieve specific goals by 2020, including:

Improving our high school graduation rate to 93%, from a starting point of 75%.
Enabling at least 94% of third graders to meet State reading standards, in contrast to our baseline of just 69%.
Doubling the number of college students who complete their studies and receive a four-year degree.
