A “State of Education” survey is available online for Coloradans to give their input on the future of K-12 education in the state. It’s a project of the Education Leadership Council, an initiative out of the governor’s office.
Bob Rankin, who represents Garfield County in the state Legislature, co-chairs the council. Prior to creating a new educational strategy, they are seeking feedback through the survey as well as holding town halls and roundtables throughout the state.
The survey asks what Colorado’s education goals are, and how effective the current system is at reaching them. It also asks what skills are necessary to prepare students to join the workforce.
The Education Leadership Council will use the data to recommend updated public education strategies throughout the state.
