Colorado Children's Campaign

This week on The West Steps we untangle school finance in Colorado. It starts in an unexpected place: huge variations in local property tax rates that no Coloradan has ever voted on or had a say in. We’re not just talking about local decisions by voters to raise money for school technology or special programs. The problem goes deeper than you think—but there is a potential solution. Listen in with Leslie Colwell, our Vice President of K-12 Education Initiatives, as we go into the ultimate explanation of our dysfunctional school finance.
