Johnston rolls out new School Finance Act
State Sen. Mike Johnston, D-Denver.
DENVER — State Sen. Mike Johnston, a former principal and darling of the education reform movement, rolled out a draft proposal of a re-written School Finance Act Monday that aims to dramatically increase funding for Colorado schools.
The multiple proposals, which include increased K-12 funding and new investments in early childhood education, wouldn’t take effect “until a new statewide ballot initiative brings in new revenue”, according to Johnston’s website.
According to Johnston, the draft language for legislation, which has yet to be introduced, comes from meetings with 2,000 stakeholders from 140 or the state’s 178 school districts.
