"It's Working" Campaign to Highlight Benefits of Douglas County School Reforms

August 21, 2013

The state’s largest free-market  organization, Americans for Prosperity Foundation – Colorado, today launched a  multi-faceted education campaign effort aimed at keeping Douglas County Public  Schools moving forward with ongoing reforms. This comes in response to efforts  by teacher unions and other left-wing special interests to reverse years of  progress in the district.

AFP Foundation-CO will launch the effort with a series of television ads that will begin airing today: follow this link to see the first of them.  “Douglas County School District is leading by example,  proving that choice, higher standards and merit pay for teachers does improve  the quality of education for students,” said AFP Foundation-CO State Director  Dustin Zvonek. “Anybody who questions whether these innovative reforms can  actually strengthen our education system needs to look no further than Douglas  County, where it’s working”.

While those hoping to rollback such innovations are desperately trying to  paint these and other positive changes as something counterproductive and  controversial, the district by all measures is not just healthy but thriving  thanks to a pro-reform school board. “Reform has brought real benefits to  Douglas County and it’s important that all citizens know that in Douglas County  education reform is working”, concluded Zvonek.

Please direct all media inquiries to AFP Foundation-CO State Director Dustin  Zvonek at 72 0-219-1451.
