Statement of Support for Proposition 308

Karen D. Johnson, Ph.D. | President & CEO, New Pathways for Youth

New Pathways for Youth supports the passage of Proposition 308. As a fundamental principle of fairness, students who graduate from Arizona high schools should be eligible for in-state tuition rates at Arizona colleges. These students are the future workforce for our state, and we should encourage them to continue their education right here in Arizona.

For the Dreamers at New Pathways for Youth, we want to give them every opportunity to continue their education and contribute to the strength of our economy. Prop 308 has bipartisan support from community, education, and business leaders, after having passed both the House and Senate with votes from both Republicans and Democrats.

We encourage a Yes vote on Prop 308 to provide fair access to all Arizona students.
