Does Colorado provide schools with the resources to ensure all children receive the quality education they need to grow and succeed in the 21st century? Many Coloradoans agree the answer is “no.” During fall 2016, CSFP and Augenblick, Palaich & Associates (APA) are in the process of updating our Costing Out / Equity work.
The challenge: Meeting high expectations for students and schools requires thoughtful review of Colorado’s school funding system.

Our goal: We will give elected officials, educators and the public the information needed to make wise decisions on K-12 support.
