Julie Sperl: Yes on Amendment 66

Julie Sperl

To the editor:

Amendment 66 will modernize Colorado’s P-12 system by:

■ Strengthening early childhood education by investing in preschool and full-day kindergarten.

■ Reducing class sizes to offer more one-on-one time between students and teachers.

■ Ensuring that Colorado kids have a great teacher in every classroom and a great principal in every school.

■ Increasing support for gifted and talented students, at-risk students and English-language learners.

■ Providing equal funding to charter schools and district schools, ensuring that students receive the same support no matter the type of school they attend.

Money raised by Amendment 66 will be placed in the State Education Achievement Fund and only can be used for education reforms and enhancements to existing programs.
