I donated to the Education Foundation of Eagle County because as a parent, I believe a community thrives with a public-education system that has a solid foundation grounded in our children’s best interests first.
We’re fortunate to have exceptional and passionate teachers, and they make a difference daily in educating our children.
Unfortunately, the state funding in Colorado is grossly underfunded to sustain quality schools and to meet the educational legislative demands, like the new rigorous curriculum that was put into place this year. The state funding was ruled “inadequate, not meeting the thorough and uniform standard prescribed by our state Constitution.”
Every district in the state of Colorado is struggling to meet the needs of our children, and Eagle County is no exception.
Children are the future of this state and our country. The Constitution guarantees every child the right to a quality education. Unfortunately, we as a country are failing to provide our children with the education they deserve.
The Education Foundation of Eagle County is a nonprofit that was created to raise private monies to off-set budgetary cuts of Eagle County schools. The Education Foundation of Eagle County was successful in gaining both the board and district approval to become the funding mechanism for teachers.
Donating to Education Foundation of Eagle County is the only way we as a community can put quality teachers back in front of our kids. The Education Foundation of Eagle County is committed to establishing a viable foundation that is invested in Eagle County’s public schools and every child walking through those doors.
Over 4,000 of you voted yes on 3B. Now is the time to show your support for our community, our children and the future of Eagle County’s public education.
