Readers say they’re unimpressed with education legislation

On Monday, we asked our readers if they were satisfied with the education legislation passed this year by the Colorado General Assembly.

The session ended earlier this month with little to show for education. Here’s how our readers voted in our unscientific poll:

Teacher Mark Sass put it this way:

In my opinion it would have been best had the state legislature never even convened. The assessment legislation was a hodgepodge of concessions among legislators that only satiated their desire to claim partial victory with their constituents. The new assessment legislation throws a major wrench into the work districts have done around teacher evaluation. As for education funding, little was done to lower the negative factor. Not a memorable legislative session.

As always, we invite you to be part of the conversation on Facebook and Twitter.
