*Our children represent the future of our State and country, they deserve high quality in our education system.
*While Colorado has among the highest per-capita rate of advanced degrees in the country, we rank near the bottom in sending our high-schoolers to college.
*Of those kids who go on to college, nearly 1/3 require remedial instruction in at least one subject.
*If our kids are going to complete in a 21st-century global economy, it's time to move on from 20th-century standards.
*I support choice in our educational systems
*I support fully funding schools, holding schools accountable and increasing parental involvement.
