Stand for Children Arizona has been serving Arizona families for over 11 years. As one of the leading education advocacy organizations in the state, our mission focuses on ensuring that all students receive a high quality, relevant education. Our Executive Director, Rebecca Gau, was featured on Horizon, PBS to share Stand’s work with Arizona families and the impact that the organization is having during the pandemic, as well as how it has affected families – from food insecurity to the digital divide.
Stand also recently released a set of guidelines to make sure students are motivated and engaged, and that this upcoming school year does not turn into a “lost school year.” Those recommendations include fair grading practices, an adviser for every middle and high school student and starting the year with a virtual home visit between teachers and their students.
Rebecca Gau spoke to The Show on KJZZ Phoenix about how concerned educators are about this upcoming school year becoming a "lost year."
We are always excited to share our impact with our local media partners. Thank you for highlighting our important work!
