Equitable Funding for All Kids

Idea Category: Education


Unfortunately, in Colorado and across the nation, students are prioritized differently based on the type of school they attend, not the needs of the student.


I wrote and passed landmark legislation to create transparency around how we fund our schools locally, and ensuring that students are not treated differently just because of the type of schools they attend. My legislation also gives school boards the flexibility they need to ensure that historically disadvantaged student populations can and should receive more funding, but that they should not be treated differently because of their choice of school.
