Burgundy Koenig started this petition to Governor Jared Polis

I want to make a difference in the salaries that early childhood educators make. As an educator, we spend 10+ hours with these children, where we shape the lives of these children. I believe that especially through the changes involving covid-19, teachers week long and hard hours and devote everything they have to the children in their care. During these times, we have had to adapt the classrooms to fit the older children who still need to have their education. But the early childhood professionals still get paid less than the primary school professionals. I believe that both should be paid more but especially the early childhood professionals. The problem is that the centers don't get enough funding to pay the teachers what they deserve. The purpose of this petition is to allow government funding to the childcare centers so the owners can also make the money they deserve. I believe that anyone who is in the early childhood education field deserves to make more money. Sometimes there will be days where we question why we do this job, there are days where the children make it so hard to finish the day. We don't stay in this career for the money. We make the connections with the children and that is what makes working in the early childhood education field worth all of the work.
