ForwARd Arkansas today released a report featuring baseline data on the state’s educational outcomes as it works to develop a long-term, strategic plan for P-16 education. The State of Education in Arkansas is the result of extensive research on school performance, student demographics, test scores, graduation rates and other education metrics.
ForwARd Arkansas urged educators, parents, students, community leaders and policy makers to visit its new website and complete an online survey on how to prepare Arkansas students for success in college and/or the workplace.
The Arkansas Board of Education on Thursday voted to establish a strategic partnership with the state’s two leading foundations committed to increasing educational attainment. Through the ForwARd initiative, the Winthrop Rockefeller Foundation and Walton Family Foundation will lead the development of a comprehensive plan to strengthen public education in the state targeted on recommendations for academically distressed schools and districts.
