2019 Field Guide to Education in Colorado

Children sitting in first-grade classrooms today will graduate from high school in the year 2030. Experts predict that 85% of the jobs available in that same year have yet to be invented. The challenge, then, to educate and prepare students for an unknown future is an urgent one.

Utilizing the framework of Vision 2030 – aligned with state initiatives to make Colorado a leader in education – we have created the 2019 Field Guide to Education in Colorado. The field guide includes facts about education in Colorado, the economic impact of our current system, and the world of opportunities available if we collectively embrace the innovative techniques that prepare students for the Age of Agility.

We encourage you to take a look at the state of education in Colorado and continue to follow our social media channels and blog for more up-to-date information about the future of education.
