About Us

In many ways, Colorado is ahead of the game when it comes to public schools. We have a statewide choice system that enables parents to find the right school for their kids, regardless of what district it’s in. And there’s a thriving charter-school system that brings innovation and bolsters the supply of quality options.

But when it comes to results for kids, we’re still pretty mediocre. Education Week grades us at a C, and U.S. News & World Report ranks our K-12 system down at number 30.

Lots of room for improvement. And we hear a lot from politicians, special-interest groups, and advocates about how to improve our schools. We don’t hear enough from parents, teachers and kids.

Colorado School Talk is a place for parents, educators and students to have their say about their schools—having no special interest other than a great future for our kids.

Elevating the education conversation.
