A school library. Buses for field trips. Five day school weeks. Fully funded, full day Kindergarten.
These are some of the reasons that parents, teachers, students, and community members believe that Colorado needs to consider more education funding for our schools.
Although Amendment 73, which would have put $1.6 billion into districts across the state, did not pass this year, we are still continuing our fight for what we think is right for our kids. Election season might be over, but the reality is that our teacher pay and per-pupil spending remain among the worst in the country.
That's why we are asking parents across Denver to join us for our Winter Member Summit: Funding Our Future. We will be discussing ways that parents and community members can organize to demand more funding for their schools. The event will take place on Saturday, December 15th from 10am to 2pm at Mi Casa Resource Center (345 S Grove St). Childcare, interpretation, and lunch will be available. Please let us know if you think you can make it by registering!
