School tax measure a big question mark in Colorado

Published On: Jul 11 2013 11:40:11 AM CDT


Colorado voters likely have a big decision to make this fall on taxes. Education groups are hoping Colorado approves the biggest permanent tax increase ever posed to voters in an effort to correct years of flawed school funding.

It's a decision that could determine the future of public education in the state, not to mention the political futures of politicians taking sides on it.
Education advocates have less than a month to gather signatures needed to put the question on ballots. After that, they'll have to sell Colorado on the tax hike and what it would fund. The money would go to statewide full-day kindergarten, more funding for special-needs students and enhanced interventions to make sure kids can read by third grade.
