The Colorado Paradox

Colorado has one of the most highly educated populations of any state in the nation. About 35 percent of adults age 25 or older in Colorado hold a bachelor’s degree or higher. In the United States as a whole, only 30 percent of adults hold a bachelor’s degree or higher. This means that Colorado adults rank far above the rest of the nation when it comes to education.

Unfortunately, the same cannot be said of Colorado children. Colorado’s public school graduation rate – the percentage of Colorado students who start public high school and graduate on time – ranks in the bottom half of the states (27thamong 50). It is a paradox – how could Colorado rank at the top of the nation in terms of the education levels of its population, but rank so low in terms of graduation rates?

Stuart began his career at APS in 1986 as a teacher at Aurora Central High School. He then taught for two years at Mrachek Middle School. Stuart returned to Aurora Central, where he served as a teacher, dean of students, coach and director of the at-risk education program. From 1996 to 1999 he was the assistant principal at Aurora Central. Stuart served as principal of William Smith High School from 1999-2001. Stuart has been student achievement director in APS since 2001, where he supervised K-12 principals and helped implement the Aurora Achievement Initiative.
