Denver School of Science and Technology middle and high schools are ranked among the top schools in the Denver Public School system, DSST officials said Tuesday. The school boasts that its students have a 100-percent acceptance rate into colleges or universities.

Teacher union officials said the charter expansion could have a negative effect on other local schools. The pact was approved 5-2.

Aurora Education Association The real question should be, "If left unchallenged, how long will it be before charters in Aurora PUBLIC Schools outnumber traditional public school?"

The teacher shortage problem in Colorado is real, especially in rural parts of the state. While the state convenes a study to get to the root of the problem, the Colorado School Finance Project shows that the root cause of the problem isn't much of a mystery.

This brief presentation provides an overview of education funding in Colorado.
Public education is the bedrock of our society, our communities and our democracy. Colorado’s future depends on adequate and equitable investment in our public schools and students. Because Colorado’s current school finance system provides insufficient and inequitable funding:

– Colorado students do not have adequate and/or equitable access to critical educational opportunities, supports, and individual attention;
– Colorado’s school districts are unable to support a highly professional teaching force, equitably available to all students;
Unintended inequities among districts continue to grow; and,
– We are not enabling all students to graduate ready for the workforce and/or post-secondary opportunities. With students’ futures in the balance, the need to address Colorado’s school funding failures is immediate and urgent.
