Arizona Superintendent of Public Instruction Diane Douglas will present an all-inclusive education plan “AZ Kids Can’t Afford to Wait” at the first stop of her “We Heard You Tour” on Thursday, Oct. 1 at 6 p.m. at the Phoenix Art Museum at 1625 North Central Avenue in  Phoenix.

The plan is intended as a comprehensive strategy to fix Arizona’s education system, Douglas said.

“Many of the proposals take time and the support of others,” Douglas said. “However, our system did not develop problems overnight, and they cannot be solved overnight either.”

The concerns and suggestions of educators, parents, and students regarding Arizona’s education system that were brought up during the “We Are Listening Tour” at 14 meetings throughout the state, in addition to the comments submitted via the Arizona Department of Education‘s website and social media sites, and input during Douglas’ campaign appearances were all used to develop this plan.

Several stops are included in the “We Heard You Tour” and parents, educators, business leaders and community members are invited to take part in the events.
