Definition: Education is the transference of knowledge, skills and habits from one person or group to another person, group or generation.
Challenges/Issues: Schools must equip students with skills in reading, writing, math, sciences, history and the arts. Students, upon graduation, should possess the ability to think critically and demonstrate the private disciplines and habits for personal success. Often genuine empathy and concern for students, their family's circumstances and socio-economic status decreases the educational process of students, depriving them of the skills needed to succeed in life.
4Tucson Goal: Become a community that values education, with Tucson area schools consistently ranking in the top 10% of schools in the country.
