Government funding for education in Colorado is among the lowest in the nation. In fact, funding for higher education has dropped 48% in the last 8 years. This is the largest decrease nationwide during this time period. Colorado State University alone has seen a $37.6 million dollar decrease in funding. This does not only hurt the institutions, but the students as well. For the Government to increase funding in education would mean that there would be more people gaining an education, leading to more qualified workers, and ultimately a higher tax revenue back to the government. To increase funding would be buying into their own system. By presenting this petition, I am hoping to raise awareness toward this issue, ultimately leading to a change in state education funding.
