After announcing a comprehensive plan for the future of K-12 education in Colorado, Jared Polis hit the road last week to talk with teachers and thank them for all the sacrifices they make on behalf of kids in Colorado. Polis’ “Giving Thanks to Teachers” tour took him to Denver, Johnstown, Windsor, and Greeley.
“It’s time for us to not just talk about valuing teachers and investing in our students, but to actually roll up our sleeves and get it done,” Polis said of his education plan. “My goal as governor will be to build aneducation system here in Colorado where teachers are respected, where public schools in every community are supported, and where every child gets a strong start and the great education they need to unlock a bright future. I’m proud to be partnering with dedicated Colorado educators and parents to craft a bold plan to overcome the challenges we face.”
