Adequate Funding for Public Education Should be a Top Priority

Colorado’s legislature is kicking into high gear. Because of declining revenues and the depth of the recession, at the top of every legislator’s priority list is how to properly fund all of the services our citizens need. We understand the dilemma facing the state and the legislature. For CEA, our highest concern is how the funding challenge will affect quality public education.

We think funding public education should be the highest priority for the Colorado legislature because quality education shapes the future of Colorado for us and our children. We believe education is also critical to our economic recovery. Investment in public education is a vital component of:

  • Recruiting top businesses to Colorado;
  • Keeping businesses in our state; and
  • Providing a highly educated workforce.

The investment we make in public education speaks volumes about our ability and commitment to provide long-term economic viability for our state. Decisions we make today will affect our future and our children’s future for years to come. Let’s invest in public education.

You can follow the funding situation at the State Capitol on our legislative update blog: CEA Capitol Connection.
