A Colorado Democrat literally sang “Kumbaya” as the Senate agreed to a long-debated plan to start restoring K-12 budgets hurt by years of budget cuts.
The 2013 election provided a mixed bag of results from throughout the state and three big takeaways as we look toward 2014, CBSDenver.com Blogger Dominic Dezzutti writes.
Some education advocates may see the Lobato State Supreme Court ruling as a loss. But time may prove that losing in the Supreme Court may have been the best thing for education funding in Colorado.
A landmark case on the education system in Colorado is being heard by the state supreme court. It involves a lawsuit in which a lower court found the system is severely underfunded.
Education advocates are calling on Gov. John Hickenlooper to rethink his decision to appeal a court ruling against the state’s school funding system.
Sen. Rollie Heath wants to ask voters to raise Colorado’s income and sales tax rates, saying the governor’s proposal to further slash education funding by $332 million next year was “the straw that broke the camel’s back.”
It appears that the first game of chicken Gov. John Hickenlooper has gotten himself embroiled in is with his own political party, CBSDenver.com blogger Dominic Dezzutti writes.
