Get Involved in Education: Advocacy Works!

Did you know that the Arkansas Supreme Court requires the state to conduct an ongoing study of whether Arkansas is providing an “adequate” and “equitable” public education to all students? Over half of our state’s budget is spent on K-12 education, and this study is critical to informing how that money is distributed.

Students need far more of us to pay attention and get involved in this process, so we can move Arkansas from adequacy to excellence.

You can attend or watch online the next adequacy meeting, taking place this Tuesday at 9:00 a.m. See links below for the agenda and live streaming, and stay tuned for more information about what adequacy really means and why it matters.
