Colorado teachers push for more school funding

Colorado teachers push for more school funding

He said because funding is so low, he feels his students don't have the resources they need to succeed.

"When I got into education, I knew I wasn't going to make that much money", said Karen Cohn, a special-education teacher at Century Middle School.

Sauk Rapids Police Chief Perry Beise says the boy randomly cut three children at Pleasantview Elementary School on Monday morning, then went into the office and set the knife down.

"They don't speak for me, and I think that (coming today) was to us a way of saying this is not over". A large contingent filled the Rotunda. There are 40 schools in the Poudre School District, and about 30 have signed up to do a walk-in.

They say it's not just about their wages.

About 19,000 teachers are working in the province, from kindergarten to general education levels.

And even though lawmakers tried to reverse some of those cuts by passing a almost $500 million tax to increase spending, it's not enough, said Robin Wiser, a high school science teacher from Berryhill. Per-pupil spending in Colorado has ranked near the bottom in the nation. Her 22-year-old daughter is a first-year teacher, and Smith says she can't afford to move out on her own.
