Today we’re launching a new feature on our site: “Chalkbeat wants to know.” Every Monday, we’ll ask readers a question about a timely or timeless question about their experiences in education. Readers who want to share their opinions should leave a response in the comment section below, tweet us @ChalkbeatCO, send an email, or leave a comment on our Facebook wall. Every Friday we’ll round up the responses.
This week’s question: What role — if any — have public education issues played in your vote this election?
Tomorrow, the votes will be tallied in the midterm election, and we’ll know if the state governor’s mansion, Senate seat, legislature and State Board of Education will switch partisan hands. We’ll also find out whether voters said yes to a wide variety of ballot measures, including a proposal to allow casino gambling, which could mean more money for public schools, and to extend a tax to support preschool in Denver. How has education factored into your voting? Let us know! And if you’re still undecided, check out our guide to the education issues of the election here.
