Letter: Legislature does not value schools

Listen to this post

Dear Editor:
Let’s face it! The nature of work is changing. People must be ready to upgrade and polish their skills. Schools provide the foundation by which we learn. When hiring, Colorado’s business have two choices: 1. Hire a skilled Coloradan 2. Hire a skilled employee from outside Colorado. Either way high paying jobs require skilled employees.
“Since 2008 Colorado’s legislature has borrowed $7.4 billion out of funding for schools.” (http://bit.ly/2x4flGk)
It seems to me Colorado’s “successful economy” is based on borrowed money. Is it any wonder Colorado’s schools are in serious trouble?
The blunt truth is Colorado’s legislature does not value public education!
