Originating in a Denver living room in 2005, Great Education Colorado is a statewide, nonpartisan, grassroots organization sparked by local parents sharing concerns about the current state of public education and its future. Great Education Colorado is now a reliable source of information for the community and serves as a pipeline from the public to the legislature and state leaders on issues around educational resources. The organization believes in a long-term investment for education in Colorado, from preschool through college. Current Great Education Colorado activities include crafting public awareness campaigns, supporting grassroots efforts and finding education funding resources.
