Urgent call to action from E•ƒ(ec) and our partners at GreatEd Colorado:
The State Joint Budget Committee (JBC) has begun work to prepare next year’s budget for introduction and approval by the 2014 Colorado state legislature.The current proposal is expected to increase funding for K-12 education by enrollment plus inflation, keeping the negative factor at the same dollar amount, which only means that we aren’t making any headway in reversing the budget cuts we’ve experienced during the last five years. This year, unlike in previous years, we intend to get out in front of the budget planning process to make an impact before critical decisions are made regarding funding for public education.
Join GreatEd and EFEC in urging the JBC to create a multi-year plan to reverse the education budget cuts and give education its fair share of the newly available revenues. Add your voice as an individual by signing this letter to the JBC urging the JBC and state leaders to allow our kids to recover along with the economy. Be sure to use the tell-a-friend tool to encourage your friends to sign.
