The Colorado Democrats have never met an income tax increase they didn't love.(OK, not strictly true. I'm sure they would campaign against any tax increase to improve law enforcement, increase incarceration of criminals, or promote enforcement of immigration laws. But those are other stories.)
At any rate, this must be the thousandth gazillionth time the Democrats have tried to promote an income tax increase for some "cause". Supposing this passed? What then? How many more years before the "PROGRESSIVES" are back for more money for education because the previous ten thousand increases didn't improve educational outcomes? Two years? Five years?
Besides, as usual, this has nothing to do with education and everything to do with trying to implement a graduated income tax like California and the other rapidly bankrupting states have had for decades. Just another step away from powerhouse economic policies of states like Texas and another step closer to bankrupt states like California and Illinois.

throw money at the problem. Tax increase or not the TCAP scores, staff retention, student enrollment, etc. have steadily declined uner the past 2 superintendents. And that's only the tip of the iceberg.

Schools have enough money. Problem is teachers and their unions want more for themselves!
