Coloradans want substantive outcome-driven reforms

DENVER (November 5, 2013)—Compass Colorado, a coalition member of Coloradans for Real Education Reform, responded to the defeat of Amendment 66:

“Colorado families spoke loud and clear,” said Kelly Maher, executive director of Compass Colorado. “We need substantive outcome-driven reforms to the educational system before we ask families and small businesses to foot a major tax bill. Governor Hickenlooper has continued his march leftward, and Coloradans have clearly told him today that he’s lost his ‘moderate’ status.

“The proponents spent well in excess of $10 million to market this tax increase to Coloradans and the stunning margins of failure show that never has so much been spent by so few to accomplish so little.”
