“What we will prove as we move forward and build this ‘One Arizona’ is that we can continue to work on education, can continue to invest in teachers, especially those who teach subjects like math and science, continue to create high-wage jobs, and continue to be a leader in 21st Century technologies.” Gov. Janet Napolitano

“We will be working hard to continue to raise standards, emphasize academic rigor in the classroom and increase student learning in Arizona. But in the meantime, let us pay tribute to Arizona educators and spread the word: Despite our need to increase our resources, Arizona schools are producing students who perform above the national average in their test scores.” Superintendent of Public Instruction Tom Horne
