About Us

Great Futures CoalitionGreat Futures Colorado is a growing and diverse coalition of organizations that informs the public about the need for an education system — preschool through higher education — that will prepare all students for the challenges of the 21st century.

Our Core Principles:

  • Public education is the bedrock of our democracy, fundamental to individual opportunity, and the key to Colorado’s economic recovery, prosperity and future.
  • Colorado must provide its students with a public education system – preschool through college – that enables every child to learn to high standards, to become well-rounded, life-long learners, and to compete successfully in the 21st century global economy.
  • Colorado’s public education system must both demand accountability from educators, parents, students and policymakers and provide them with the support and resources necessary for students to be successful.
  • Colorado needs a public education system that has adequate funding – fairly raised and equitably distributed – to provide quality teaching and appropriate educational opportunities for every student and to make student-centered, evidence-based, sustainable education reform possible.
  • For those who care about Colorado’s current and future students, inaction is no longer an option.
