ForwARd Arkansas

Educational Equity
We continue to support ForwARd to ensure all Arkansas students, regardless of background and circumstance, are prepared for success in college and the workplace. In 2014, ForwARd was formed as a public-private partnership of the Walton Family Foundation, the Winthrop Rockefeller Foundation, and the Arkansas State Board of Education to dramatically improve student outcomes in Arkansas. ForwARd uses three strategies to pursue educational equity: build place-based models, enhance local and state public policies, and increase public will.

ForwARd uses three key strategies to pursue this vision: build place-based models, enhance local and state public policies, and increase public will.
