#RedForEd Demonstrators Demand School Funding in Colorado

Building on the momentum of teacher strikes and rallies around the country, thousands of Colorado educators rallied at the State Capitol on April 26 and 27.

The #RedforEd rally, organized by Colorado Education Association, saw teachers, students, and supporters descend on the Capitol to demand the state legislature restore a $6.6 billion funding deficit facing schools statewide.

Free Speech TV was on the ground in Denver on April 27, when educators from 30 school districts marched on the Capitol.

Colorado is currently $2,700 below the national average in per-pupil funding, according to the CEA. Demonstrators demanded that lawmakers restore and increase education funding by at least $150 million this year. They also asked lawmakers to commit to freezing corporate tax breaks until all schools are fully funded and per-pupil spending reaches the national average.
