On Tuesday, Colorado voters will decide whether to give the state $1.6 billion in additional taxes to increase school funding. It’s a request they’ve rejected twice before, and this time it faces a higher bar — Amendment 73 will need 55 percent of the vote to pass. “Everything is at stake,” said Alison Corbett, a teacher at High Tech Early College in Denver’s Montbello neighborhood.. “We are increasingly demanding results from teachers — as we should be — particularly from our teachers who teach low-income kids, but we are not providing the resources to meet their needs. So many of our schools are not doing what we set out to do. We can’t demand equity of results without providing equity of funding.”
