The Colorado Education Association and its local affiliates have never been known for telling the truth, so the email an affiliated organization, Colorado Children Before Profits, sent out proclaiming victory over SB17-61, a bill that equalizes funding between traditional public schools and public (all) charter schools, wasn’t surprising. But it was disappointing. Here is a picture of the note sent to supporters:


There’s just one problem with this victory lap. SB17-61 became HB17-1375, which passed overwhelmingly.

Either Colorado Children Before Profits and its lobbyist is dumb or is intentionally misleading its supporters. Given the history, we’re going with the latter. These folks are even more disgusting than the Democrats who put unions before kids in voting against HB1375. There is spin, then there are complete and total lies. We’re calling bullsh!t on Children Before Profits.
