Arizona Mayors To Gather For Education Roundtable Tuesday
Posted on: October 8, 2012
Mayors of Arizona will be gathering October 9, 2012 to announce their Arizona Mayors Education Roundtable in a press conference.
The new alliance will be used to improve education throughout Arizona, according to a news release from the mayor's office. As Mayor Rothschild said, "This is another important tool we have to improve education in Southern Arizona and statewide. I am delighted to be working with other concerned mayors and education professionals on this most important task."
The Arizona Mayors Education Roundtable will give mayors, who typically have limited opportunities to become involved in their public schools, the chance to share ideas, learn from more experienced peers and experts, and participate in new, place-based convenings and discussions among mayors, their staff, urban superintendents, school district leadership, and community members.
The initial framework for the work of the Arizona Mayors Educational Roundtable is a focus on getting all students to be college and career ready, with the understanding that individual cities may work to reach that goal in different ways, depending on school districts and community priorities.
