A simple Google News search of Amendment 66 will show how much the high-profiled education matter is being talked about beyond Colorado.
Colorado residents will decide on Nov. 5 if Amendment 66 passes or fails. For more details on the amendment, read our recent story headlined: Battle over Colorado school tax draws, big money, heavy hitters.
A recent post on Philly.com, writer Will Bunch said “Colorado is deciding whether to spend a few more dollars upfront now on its schools so maybe it can spend a few less on jail cells down the road.” He then asks why Pennsylvania isn’t doing the same thing.
Bunch references an op-ed article published Oct. 28 in the New York Times, written by Frank Bruni titled: A Bold Bid for Better Schools.
“That’s why my eyes turn to Colorado. That’s why yours should, too,” Bruni writes.
Tony Messenger, editorial page editor at the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, writes briefly about Amendment 66 here and said this about Missouri.
“Here in Missouri, we’re used to millionaires spending that kind of money to cut their income taxes and starve schools of revenue. Actually spending money on kids seems so, well, refreshing.”
