Our students are our most important investment in Colorado’s future.
The Colorado Academic Standards, which include the Common Core, were implemented across the state this past school year. Why support Common Core Standards in Colorado? Because without high expectations, we can’t be sure if our kids are keeping up or on the right track to success. Currently, the standards that one student has to meet in Denver can be completely different from what a student will be reaching for in Grand Junction or Sterling. All Colorado’s kids deserve the same high expectations and the same opportunity for success in college and career. By putting kids first, we’re giving Colorado’s children the opportunity to succeed in life.
These infographics show the great need for higher expectations, to ensure Colorado’s kids are ready for Colorado’s jobs.
