2013: Year of the StudentOvercrowded classes, narrowing curriculum, skyrocketing higher ed tuition. We can do better!

If, like me, you believe that it’s way past time for the Colorado legislature to fund preschool, K-12 and higher education in a way that ensures success for every student, here’s your chance to raise your voice. This Wednesday, January 30th, our friends at Great Education Colorado, together with the growing Year of the Student coalition, will deliverthousands of signatures to our Colorado legislators and Gov. John Hickenlooper, calling on them to reverse years of huge cuts—and create a plan this year to reinvest in public education.

The fact is, after a billion dollars in cuts during the recent recession, we as a state have failed to make the investment necessary to be sure every Colorado student, from pre-school to graduate school, receives the best education available. In 2013, it’s time to take action.

Help our friends at Great Education Colorado reach 9,000 signatures today: sign this petition now.

Thanks for your quick response on this critically important issue.
