I had a terrific opportunity to attend the Learn to Read, Read to Learn conference in Denver this morning. As a former 7th grade remedial reading teacher, I loved what I was hearing.

And all of them were coming together to help Colorado’s students improve their future through literacy.

A major reason why I began working for the “professional educator association” movement was because, as a classroom teacher, I was frustrated by the fact that the public often perceives teachers as a narrow-minded group of professionals that all hold the same, union-influenced opinion when it comes to education policy.

AAE/PACE are proving that teachers are, in fact, a diverse group of professionals that have a wide variety of intelligent opinions about what the future of education should look like.

As a person who follows the news regularly, I couldn’t help but notice how many education stories about Colorado were popping up this week both locally and nationally. This tells me that now is an important time for our state, and more particularly our teachers, to be informed and engaged with what is happening. Keep reading for a brief overview of the stories I have been following regarding funding Colorado's education system, the vouchers in Douglas County, and the progress being made in Denver Public Schools.

With our nation's schools slated to begin in the weeks to come, education has been a hot topic among policymakers at that state and local level. This week, at an ongoing education summit hosted by Iowa Governor Terry Branstad, U.S. Education Secretary Arne Duncan delivered some harsh remarks about not only the state of the Iowa school systems, but the overarching problems he believes our entire country's schools are facing.
