Politics today has polarized Coloradans, yet most of us agree that every child should have the opportunity to reach his/her potential regardless of ethnicity, race, or socioeconomic background. Despite differing circumstances, children deserve a chance. When kids of color and those from low-income backgrounds are faced with increasing adversity and declining social mobility, the game starts to feel rigged against them.

Looking at the lifetime earnings of high school dropouts, diploma holders, and college graduates, it becomes clear that education (or lack of quality education options) plays a role in this stratification. Earnings are directly linked to degree certification.
