CEA announces legislative priorities for 2018

Students deserve solutions to inadequate school funding, the growing shortage of qualified teachers, and PERA

When Colorado legislators convene Jan. 10 for the new legislative session, they have an opportunity to make a real difference in student’s lives. With over 35,000 members, the Colorado Education Association believes that creating schools our students deserve starts with increasing public school funding, aggressively addressing the growing teacher shortage crisis, and fixing PERA.

CEA urges Legislature to support public school funding for Colorado students

The Governor’s office submitted requests today to the Joint Budget Committee (JBC) for adjustments in public education funding. JBC members are in the midst of intense, strategic discussions to maintain reasonable funding levels for all state services during the General Assembly.
