John Hickenlooper on Education

 


Federal funds will ensure excellence in Education in CO

Gov. Hickenlooper applauded the U.S. Department of Education's announcement that Colorado is eligible to apply for Race to the Top funds. We have every intention of pursuing this opportunity to fund excellence in our schools. In the face of increasing global competition, educating our kids is the key to economic success. Colorado will build on our previous Race to the Top applications, forge ahead with the reform efforts we already have underway and hopefully secure this federal funding.

Support great teachers in a 21st Century education system

Education needs to be about what is best for our kids and that means raising the level of their achievement in knowledge and skills necessary to be successful adults. We must continue our investment in building a 21st Century education system in Colorado Without a strong education system, job creation & economic development cannot be sustained. Making Colorado synonymous with innovation has to include supporting great teachers, and engaging parents & local communities as partners to improve our schools.
