Their tweet: “Want quality education? Head to Arizona.”
Arizona couldn’t be prouder of the teachers, students, and communities who made this happen. Governor Ducey has visited countless classrooms and he’s seen first-hand the work Arizona teachers and principals are doing to ensure kids receive a high-quality education.
