All parents want their children to receive the best education Arizona can offer, preparing them for the challenges ahead whether they seek to pursue higher education or career opportunities. Unfortunately, many Arizona parents do not have early childhood education options to give their children the start they deserve. Not only does child care become more expensive, but oftentimes inaccessible.

From early childhood education through K to 12, public and charter schools are in need of stronger support and accountability. Deedra Abboud believes we must work diligently to provide Arizona parents and their children the accessible and quality child care they need and strengthen schools to provide teachers the tools and resources they need to equip children for their future.
