Changing and improving our school system is one of the most important and yet sometimes one of the more complicated issues that we face in the push to improve our community. School systems are a large and complicated network of different ideas and priories but in the end, everyone has the same goal, to help our children become the leaders and innovators of tomorrow. Some groups and programs out there like Colorado Succeeds, which works specifically with helping the state of Colorado improve their education system in every system and fold, are reaching out to as many other groups and organizations as possible in order to put together a non partisan group of business leaders and policy makers that has the goal of improving schools above everything else. Colorado Succeeds wants in particular to work with business leaders for education because businesses have a huge amount of influence in the community and have the resources to make things happen but also they have a huge interest in making sure that schools are the very best that they can possibly be so that the companies are able to hire experienced and knowledable people down the road who have benefited from this great education. According to Colorado Succeeds, business leaders for education have a very uniquely positioned place in the society to be able to actually have an effect on the world and the community around them.
Colorado Succeeds actively tries to find business leaders in the community who recognize the importance of a good education system in their neighborhoods and gives those companies the support and resources needed to do all sorts of things including help push legislation, hold events and a number of other things that can help the community grow and learn in order to become better for tomorrow. Some of the main tops that Colorado Succeeds is trying to work with business leaders in the area on are things like early literacy, giving parents and children the choice to pick whichever school in their area that they want to go to, supporting teachers with the resources that they need and helping teachers with a strong impact on their students get the recognition and benefits that they deserve, and helping prepare the kids for workforce readiness. These are some of the topics that it has been found to have the most impact and do the most good for students in Colorado and help them reach their academic goals and make them better community members when they become adults. Because Colorado Succeeds and their push for education advocacy is so intertwined with business leaders in the community, as soon as someone wants to roll their sleeves up and get something done, the team at Colorado Succeeds is happy to help them do the work and figure out the best method of action in order to get students to where they need to be and help the community in whatever way that they can. Step by step, making our children better and making our community better.
