Thank you to the loyal readers and supporters of The Colorado Independent (2013-2020). The Indy has merged with the new nonprofit Colorado News Collaborative (COLab) on a new mission to strengthen local news in Colorado. We hope you will join us!
You probably knew that Colorado’s K-12 funding is shrinking. Maybe you even knew that it was nearly $2,000 per student lower than the national average.
