Arizona mayors formed the Arizona Mayors Education Roundtable recently, pledging to work together with their local school district and with other community leaders to prepare students to be college and career ready.

Eight mayors from across the state agreed that the future economic strength of the state is tied to the ability of all young people to have the skills necessary to perform in a 21st century workforce.

The organization received initial funding from the Helios Education Foundation and will be supported by WestEd, a research, development and service agency. Mayors will have the chance to share ideas, learn from peers and experts, and participate in discussions — among each other and community members.
