Arizona Public Education at a Glance

Facts should inform and improve decision making. This publication captures essential data: the number of students in K-12; how they are performing and how we measure academic success; how much money we spend on education and the sources of funds. To provide context, however, the data is preceded by an overview of America’s education system and followed by a review of our aspirations. It is a reminder of our past, an acknowledgment of our present and forecast of our future.
