As many of you know Amendment 66 is a statewide ballot initiative to raise taxes in order to fund a “first in the nation” education reform effort in Colorado. The measure aims to provide more equitable school funding, increased accountability and transparency in how public dollars are spent and increased investments in early childhood education, English Language Learners, classroom technology, and teacher training. Coloradans will be asked to vote on Amendment 66 in the November 5, 2013 election in order to raise the nearly $1 billion in revenue to implement these reform efforts outlined in Senate Bill 213 that was signed into law by Governor Hickenlooper in the 2013 legislative session. 

By listening to this radio show you can become more informed about the current state of education in Colorado, how this ballot initiative will impact the early childhood landscape, and the economic case behind such a bold reform effort. Please join our guests Bill Jaeger (VP of Early Childhood Colorado Children’s Campaign), Gloria Higgins (President and CEO, Executives Partnering to Invest in Children), and Sena Harjo (5 Year Buell Fellow and a Child and Family Educator, Clayton Early Learning) to discuss the facts and information all early childhood leaders should know about Amendment 66.  The show will be hosted by Molly Yost, Policy Specialist at Clayton Early Learning.
