President, Poudre Education Association
Given the importance of education for all for a democracy to flourish, how should we fund education?
I have been an educator for over 20 years and currently serve as a president of a local education association. One of the things I did my first year as president was to form a task force of teachers to look at how to transform the public education system. Often during our meetings the question of paying for education came up? How do we create a consistent stream of revenue so we can pay for the best education system we can? Is it a question of political will? Do we just need to except that we will have unequal, inadequate funding as collective funds (taxes) have to fulfill so many needs in out society? What should we do?
