Not to side track this, but CO is in the top 10 for education ranking and has been for a long time. CO has a great school system. While you may be near the bottom for spending. I see that as quite an accomplishment. Throwing money at something doesn't necessarily make it better. The only reason I say this is because Alaska has been in the top 3 for education spending for decades, and are near the bottom 3, every year for ranking. We now have some of the lowest academic rankings for many age groups. We are below LA, MS, etc for grade school math and reading, by a few percentage. There are plenty of excuses, but money isn't one of them... unless you are a liberal in Alaska, then cutting their funding will mean the end for children... We can't get any worse. hahaThe Colorado economy is booming yet we are at the very bottom for education spending. I'm a fiscal conservative but that law is asinine
TABOR seems like it has good intentions, but challenging consequences.
Either way, thanks for rounding up the info, makes for an interesting conversation. I'll gladly give CO my money in return for another elk at some point in the near future.
