Arizona Education Leaders Set Goals For Students

Arizona education officials have come up with specific goals for students in the state. It’s part of the Arizona Progress Meter, which measures where students are, and determines where they need to go, in a series of metrics — including high school graduation rate, and success in eighth-grade math and third-grade reading.

Expect More Arizona is one of the groups that’s worked on developing the tool. Melissa Lempke is the organization’s vice president of marketing and communications, and joins us now.

Mark Brodie is a co-host of The Show, KJZZ’s locally produced news magazine. Since starting at KJZZ in 2002, Brodie has been a host, reporter and producer, including several years covering the Arizona Legislature, based at the Capitol.
