    • When you walk away today, remember these three things:• Colorado, we’ve got a problem.• It’s a problem that can be fixed.• It’ll be fixed when we demand that it be fixed.
    • Colorado, we have a problem.Stats and Facts • $1,809 less per pupil than nat’l ave. • Bottom quintile in: • Student-teacher ratios • Technology • Teacher salaries (comparable jobs) • Achievement gaps • CO ranks 36th on funding among the 39 states that offer public preschool programs • 49th in state & local support for higher ed • Gained 9,000 students, lost 500 teachers from 09-10 to 10-11
    • Colorado, we have a problem.Stories • Increasing fees & supply lists • Reduction in graduation requirements and coursework • Overcrowded classes • Too few/outdated textbooks, old technology • Rising tuition and student fees

    • Colorado, we have a problem.The numbers behind the cuts:
    • 1991-2011 Colorado dropped from 35th to 49th in state & local per capita support of higher ed. That’s a drop from 87% of national← average to 55%.
    • That’s how we got to the “Colorado Conversation”• We’re talking about how to hurt kids the least, rather than how to help them the most.• Pits kids against kids – preschool vs. K- 12 vs. higher ed, at-risk vs. special ed.• But it’s an easy, comfortable status quo.
    • Colorado, we have a problem. WHO CARES?
    • Who Cares?• We do.• Parents.• Grandparents.• Students.• Educators.• Faith Leaders.• Businesspeople.• Community Leaders.
    • That’s several hundredthousand Coloradoans. . .who haven’t had a way to take action together.
    • Next Question:Who can fix it?
    • Who can fix it?• State leaders. • Even though they say they can’t. • They’ve got options • But they won’t fix it, until there’s demand & support.
    • Last Question:Who will demand action?
    • Who Will Demand that State Leaders Act?• We will. • All those Parents, Grandparents, Students, Educators, Businesspeople, and Faith & Civic Leaders• We will empower, encourage, and enable action.
    • We can create the will to fix it.“2013: The Year of the Student” • Demand action in 2013 - together • Strengthen the resolve of leaders who care • Build the army to ensure action
