“Education is not the filling of a pail, but the lighting of a fire.” ― W.B. Yeats
- Equal opportunity and access to education is a right of every child in this country.
- Fund our schools! Pay our teachers and education staff more and increase per-pupil funding.
- Every child should feel safe and included in their school.

Education Action Team
At APA, we recognize the importance of statewide education that is adequately funded and equitable for all Colorado kids. We partner with other organizations and politicians to promote, educate on, and pass legislation that will help get the funding our schools need and the raises our teachers deserve.
Equity and inclusion in schools is important to us. We believe students should have access to mental health and social-emotional support in school, BOOKS with wide representation, fully funded libraries and arts education programs, and safe, inclusive learning environments.
