CEA Days of Action - Media Roundup

CEA Day of Action, State Capitol, April 27

Our eighth-grade students have never been in a fully funded public school system. Colorado has failed to fund #edcolo schools and students by $6.6 billion since 2009 despite now having one of the nation's top economies. About 15,000 educators took a personal day they earned and descended on the Colorado State Capitol for one of three CEA Action Days: April 16, 26 & 27. We shouted “Not Enough!” funding for our students, making our powerful educator voice heard at #coleg and in media outlets across the state and the country. CEA thanks all of our members who attended an Action Day or staged a #RedforEd walk-in at your school to advocate for the schools our students deserve. Below is a list of the coverage telling our story in more than 100 media outlets in the state and across the country...
