Who We Are

The Arkansas Opportunity to Learn (OTL) Campaign is a coalition of statewide organizations, community leaders, parents, students, educators, policy-makers and others who are committed to public education in Arkansas and dedicated to ensuring its viability.

Our Vision and Mission:

We envision an Arkansas where the educational needs of each student are addressed, and where every child enters school ready to learn, receives a high quality education, and graduates from high school prepared for college, career, and life as a productive member of a democratic society.

We are working to engage all public education stakeholders to improve educational opportunities and outcomes in Arkansas. We are striving for an education system that guarantees each child an equitable and excellent opportunity to learn.

OTL Campaign members from all areas of the state came together for the 2012 OTL Summit.
