This past legislative session I worked with Representative Judy Solano to introduce House Bill 12-1091. The bill reduced high stakes testing to the minimum federal requirements and re-directed the $7million dollars in savings to the Colorado Preschool Program. If you don't think your vote counts, please watch this short video of the committee hearing in the House of Representatives where Republicans voted against children. There are nearly 1,100 registered lobbyists in the state of Colorado. You - parents, teachers, and grandparents - are the only voices for our children. Make sure you are carrying the voices of children to your government representatives during this critical election period.
