Checking out social media and this tweet popped up:
It’s Tuesday in America. School is in full swing. Unfortunately, not much has changed: dilapidated buildings, few instructional resources, lack of supports for needy students, and woefully underpaid educators. But the amount of worthless rhetoric is at an all time high! Vote.

First, oh so true! All the things that have been debunked just keep coming up as excuses when it pertains to funding education. They’re posted all over social media any time the subject of education comes up.
Where’s all the marijuana money? DEBUNKED
Schools need to spend within their means aka Money doesn’t solve anything. DEBUNKED!
There are 15,000 empty seats! DEBUNKED
I wouldn’t have a problem paying it but it never goes to the classrooms! DEBUNKED
The schools aren’t transparent about where the money goes! DEBUNKED
All of the myths have been debunked. Sure, it may require a bit of reading (feel free to use this page!) but it’s more than crystal clear that we’re not funding education in Colorado.
We can fix that.
