Announcing a new initiative from Great Education Colorado
Access to a quality education is the civil rights movement of our time. Currently, Colorado is in the bottom 10 percent in the nation regarding per capita spending on education and has not provided children of color with the resources they need to graduate and enter college or the workforce. We can and must do better.
For over a decade, Great Education Colorado has been working with public education supporters like you toward a vision — a Colorado where every student graduates ready for the world.
To achieve that goal, we know that all Colorado children — regardless of their background, where they live or how they learn — must have the opportunity to attend excellent schools with great, well-supported teachers. That means providing every child the supports and educational opportunities necessary to overcome challenges and succeed.
Denver Metro Catalyst for Kids is a new Great Ed initiative under the direction of Maisha Fields-Pollard that will bring people together to make that vision a reality, especially for metro-area communities of color.
We invite you to be a part of this critical effort. The first step is to “like” the Catalyst for Kids Facebook page and to invite your friends, family, and colleagues to connect to the conversation, as well. This page will be our way to keep you engaged in the conversation about what is happening in your schools.
Think of this page as a resource, a sounding board, a forum for constructive conversation. You’ll find thought-provoking articles, opportunities for action, and invitations to townhalls and discussions.
The Catalyst for Kids initiative and Facebook page is for anyone who is interested and invested in today’s children and tomorrow’s future. We hope you will join us for this journey of learning and acting together to ensure a bright future for every Colorado student.
