Education Action Team
Funding For Colorado Kids
We recognize the importance of statewide education that is adequately funded and equitable for all Colorado kids. We partner with other organizations like Support Jeffco Kids, Great Education Colorado, and Fair Tax Colorado to support legislation and ballot initiatives that better fund CO schools. We were thrilled to see progress in funding K-12 education during the 2019 and 2020 CO legislative sessions, but we have a long way to go. Sadly, the COVID-19 pandemic and resulting loss of state revenue may force significant cuts in education funding next year.
Come join us and fight for fair funding for all Colorado kids! We’ve supported the 2018 campaign for Initiative 93, the 2019 Prop CC campaign, and most recently the 2020 Fair Tax CO initiative. Although we haven’t yet been successful, we continue to partner with other advocates to better fund teachers and schools in our state.
