Jared Polis is running to be Colorado’s next governor to turn bold ideas into real results for Colorado families. As students are heading back to school, Polis this week released a web video highlighting his commitment to bringing free full-day pre-school and kindergarten to every community in Colorado.
Free full-day pre-school and kindergarten means all children will have the same opportunity to be set-up for success while giving parents the ability to return to work, and Colorado will be stronger for it.
Polis has spent most of his life working to improve and invest in our schools. In a 2000 statewide election, he was elected to the Colorado State Board of Education, where his peers later selected him to serve as the first Democratic Chairman of the Board in more than two decades.
Polis is the founder of several non-profit public schools serving at-risk children. In Congress, he helped craft the bipartisan Every Student Succeeds Act, which replaced No Child Left Behind.
