Network seeks bigger investment in education

By Pat Sunderland

Delta County Joint School District has joined the Colorado Education Network, a statewide coalition committed to the goal of adequate and equitable funding of public education in Colorado.

According to the resolution, per pupil funding in 50J is $928.60 below pre-recession levels, when adjusted for inflation.

"Wise and adequate investment in Colorado schools is essential to maintaining and improving the competitiveness of Colorado and its students," the resolution states.

Members of the Colorado Education Network recognize "the need for action and are committed to staying informed about, and engaged in, efforts to better invest in the education of each and every Colorado student."
