We’re Empowering Coloradans to Be the Voice for Kids
Coloradans overwhelmingly support investing in our kids, and especially early education.
This is key because research shows the first five years of children’s lives are critically important for their development.
We’re committed to ensuring all children succeed in school and life.
While a return to school this week may be routine for kids and parents, many families in Mesa County and thousands more across Colorado have a new cause for celebration this month: full-day kindergarten.
Providing quality early learning for Colorado’s youngest learners is a powerful step toward establishing equity in education and leveling the playing field for Colorado’s kids.
As an educator, I know how critical high-quality early learning is to academic success. So, I am excited that full-day kindergarten legislation has received strong bipartisan support and will soon be signed into law by Gov. Polis.
