What If Colorado Schools Were Number 1?
The Colorado BioScience Association is partnering with Colorado Succeeds and other Colorado business leaders on a business guide for Colorado’s next governor. The business guide looks at “What if Colorado’s Schools were #1?” This partnership plans to release a voter’s toolkit in May to help inform the public on the gubernatorial candidates’ education priorities. The guide will also cover:
- The economic impact if Colorado had the best education system in the country
- The education & workforce strategies supported by voters & employers
- The gubernatorial candidates’ plans for getting us there

Results will be shared with all 2018 gubernatorial candidates explaining how employers view the skills gap and what strategies are needed to improve Colorado’s schools. Please complete this survey by Friday, March 23 at 5 PM.
