The announcement notes that in Colorado, the state funds education at an average of $2,500 per student less than the national average, and is even lower in northeastern plains school districts.

State Senate Bill 264 originally sought to prohibit public school teachers and teacher organizations from striking.

He also wanted to make it clear that he supports teachers and believes major reforms are needed for their pay system that focuses on rewarding some of the best teachers.

JCPS has been under examination by the state of Kentucky for more than a year. "If we want Colorado's current economic prosperity to continue, we need to realize the importance of strong schools". "So thank you also for everything you have contributed", Sharon Michalik, Director of Communications for Bay District Schools, said. We're not going to move a bill that jails teachers who strike and the bill has been amended to remove that language. "However, we regret this action is taking place during the school day and impacting students".

Denver Public Schools, the largest school district in the state with a student enrollment of over 92,000 students, said Tuesday it is canceling classes on Friday due to huge number of teachers joining their peers in a classroom walkout and rally at the state Capitol. The rally is part of a statewide rally of educators planned by Colorado Education Association to advocate for greater state funding.

However, Gardner says he wants this bill to ensure that teachers stay in class and use their votes rather than their ability to strike to voice their opinions.

Meanwhile, Speaker of the House Crisanta Duran said it should be up to teachers to choose whether or not they should strike.
