The Great Schools, Thriving Communities campaign was inspired by a diverse and inclusive coalition of education-connected organizations working to advance better and more equitable funding of public schools through a ballot initiative in 2018. Great Schools, Thriving Communities believes:
- Every student needs the opportunity to reach his or her full potential and to participate meaningfully in the civic and economic life of the community.
- The Colorado way of life should be about every student having the chance to succeed regardless of their zip code or their learning needs.
- A strong economy requires quality public education as it develops a quality workforce that will drive a vibrant Colorado economy for decades to come.
